She is an incredible dresser, gorgeous and classy, and I wanted to make something that would fit her aesthetic. I thought immediately of the Sew Together Bag, which, if you have been living under a rock, is one of THE patterns that everyone with a blog or Instagram who sews has made or wants to make. I bought the pattern ages and ages ago but this was my push to actually MAKE one. And the timelines were tight.
I picked fabrics from my stash, starting with the outer lining as the inspiration fabric because it seemed so...her. (Honeymoon by C+S)
I then used this super delicious mint Pearl Bracelet fabric for the main lining.
Here are some in progress shots:
|Adding all those inner zippers was a bit scary. But carefully following the instructions really, really helped. Plus my zipper foot.|
|After sewing it together it looked so cool from the bottom.|
|This is when it started to take shape. I squealed in delight. The linings are all from Cotton+Steel's Macrame line.|
1. Quilty Friend C. She has made five of these (if not more) so I would text her with questions. She was awesome. Thanks C!
2. The sew-along steps from The Quilt Barn. Honestly, these step by step pictures helped me IMMENSELY. Especially when I got to the VERY tricky outside zipper.
|Thank goodness for my Clover Clips because this bag business is a bit tricky!|
Here is the finished product!
|Ta da! This print from Honeymoon by C+S is so perfect.|
|The linings in each pocket.|
