Blue Brown Bag

Hi there Friends! Well, I decided to sew another bag. . .it's the same pattern as the bag I created a week ago. I initially had made my first bag for my daughter but decided to keep it for myself so I promised I would make another one for my daughter! Click here for the other one I created.

This time I decided a polka dot and floral pattern is "younger" looking and perfect for my daughter. She loves the color blue and brown. It's actually the color of her bedroom decor so I thought the fabric color and design would be perfect for her.

I used a home decor fabric for the bulk of the bag and a Calico fabric for the top band and handle. The home decor fabric resist staining better and are more sturdier than regular fabric so I prefer using them on bags.

I used a Calico fabric for the lining again like I did the last time but I used a much more heavy interfacing so that it stiffer and holds up better than the last bag I created. The pocket is large enough to fit a small wallet and it also has an interfacing.

I used a large button for her bag . . .I'm not sure if I should have used a smaller button but I wanted it to stand out more so I used a larger button compared to my other bag.

As you can see the bag has a nice weave and looks very sturdy. This time around, sewing this bag was a lot faster than the first time because I did everything assembly style. The first time I had sewn this bag, I followed the instructions step by step which took a bit longer. It took me about about 4.5 hours to sew the bag from cutting the fabric, pressing, and sewing. It took me 6 hours the last time. I'm going to move on and sew a different style bag. I bought a bunch of different patterns so I have a lot of variety of bags I can sew! Yay!

Anyway, that's it for today! Hope you all have a wonderful Sunday!
