2 New Bags

Aright, I have 2 new bags I made today, the City Tote Bag and Charm School Handbag.

Charm School Handbag


The City Tote Bag bag has one inset pocket on the outside (with a button and loop closure) and one on the inside.

Approximate finished dimensions:
*12″ at widest point
*3.5″ deep at bottom
*9.5″ tall when seated
*22″ strap


I was trying to take a photo of me with the self timer and camera on the tripod, when Josh noticed it and wanted to get in the shot with me.


Here’s just a few of the many poses he made:


His dad asked him to go along to get some milk and while he was putting his jacket on, I thought I’d try to get a shot of the bag:

The 2nd bag I made is the Charm School Handbag – similar technique in making as the Dewdrop Handbag.

This bag has two cut-out handles and the brown fabric gives a faux wooden handle look. Inside is one small patch pocket. Fold the handles over and you can carry this bag as a big clutch!


I’ve got 3 other little clutch patterns to make, then I’ll decide to see which of those will make a great mix to make. I’m going to book a stall at the local markets for next month and so I’m gonna be quite busy for a while.
