what a new bag

Afternoon all 

Well good news is that Mum is now back home. Been a great worry all round 
but would not say that she is out the woods yet. 

I have been having fun over this last week making bags

so here is my bag. 

A few steps along the way :) 

pocket as you will see I have used up the material by machining 2 pieces together. 
The pocket is lined. 

It is lined with a large pocket on the inside. 

Really enjoying making things like this. 

Going to try to make some purses next. 

I do have a question if you can help

I have a purse which has the following material and I do not know 
where to get more from 

I still have about a meter but this was in a kit. 

All I see is that it is called Dash. 

Any help would love to know if I can get more. 

It is a type of Cotton Canvas / poplin / duck materiel? 

Well have a great day

  1. Very impressed with your bag making. Hopefully when we move and have space to swing a small cat, I can get a sewing machine!
    Good to hear that your Mum is home, I hope she continues to make a good recovery x

  2. lovely to read that mum is home, hopefully she will be fully recovered soon. Love the bag great fabric and design

  3. Good to hear that your mum's now home, I hope she continues to improve.
    Super little bags, no end to your creativity Pen, Kate x

  4. So glad to read that your mother has returned home. I know that takes some of the pressure off you, too.

    Your bag is wonderful. Wish I could sew like that. All I can make are things I can tear, then sew wonky style.

    I have NO idea how to answer your fabric question, because I've never heard of the kit or the company. Boy, I'm NO help at all!
