This fabric is some I bought in a second hand shop. I was some cut off from a curtain, hence the bleached lines.
I made two bags, which I used for gym and craft projects.
This bag is made entire out of fabric samples, which is why the colours go so well together.
Earlier I had made another bag from the same pattern, but it was worn down as I used the bag for work, carrying around books for teaching.
I used this pattern from warehouse fabric. The only alteration is that I arranged the pleats different for match up with the stripes.
I made this little bag as a sample bag, to show different techniques to the my students. Now i use it for small toiletries and it is my my bag I use for work.
Years ago I made a toiletry bag for myself using a pattern I created by copying an existing bag.
This Christmas I made one for my boyfriend as well using fabric samples and zippers from my stash.
Inside are a number of pockets in addition to the outside ones.
Some of the bags I have made over the time.
The blue bag and the cartoon bag are made from the buttercup pattern from the blog of Made by Rae.
The cartoon bag is made in the original size, but the one in blue wool is scaled up.
The red and orange bag is made from a pattern I made myself. I used fabric from a set of fabric samples.
I made this little circle bag for the ear buds I have in my bag at work.
The tutorial I got from here.
These covers are for my serger/overlocker and for my sewing machine.
The fabric is something my mother gave me from her stock. It was some scraps, very long and narrow, so I had to piece it together to make it fit. The strips are made from the backside of the same fabric.
This boxed bag is for the many knitting and crochet needles I suddenly had lying around creating a lot of mess.
The fabrics was something that was given to me and the zipper is from a big pile I have had for years from a flea market.
This diaper bag is made almost entirely from fabric and notions from my stock. I only had to buy two magnetic snaps.
I used this pattern, which I modifed with inspiration from here.
