After blogging on Friday about my delivery of compressed wadding I set too with cutting my slouch bag pattern out. I had a whole afternoon to myself, with no interruptions, so I sewed all afternoon until I had completed the project.
I am so thrilled with how easily the bag went together and also the end result.
|My version of the Slouch Bag|
There are no pockets in the pattern but I need pockets to divide up my
junk personal belongings so I decided that I would be fearless and add a slip pocket too.
I also like a zipped pocket to keep more valuable items safe so I also added one of these on the opposite side of the bag.
Below is a dreadful photo of me wearing the bag. Just concentrate on the bag, not my grimace!
I know that I will be making this bag again as it is so easy to make and it is a bag that you can 'wear'. I would like to make it in a tweed as I think that it would be great for the winter. I will keep my eye out for some fabric on the market. Failing that, I might raid my husband's wardrobe (if only)! So if you too would like to make this bag, Judith has it on sale on her Esty shop here.
