Bag Swap – It has been received!


Hello everybody! =)

After being absent from my blog writing for quite some time now, finally something new from me. All my time has been taken up by uni work and my master thesis over the last few months.

So you’ll have to excuse my being late to show you the bag I made for my swap partner Katherine in the process of the Bag-A-Holic Autumn Swap.

Remember the very cute bag she send me? Just a quick reminder here.

And here you can find a very kind post she wrote about my bag on her blog. =)

And here it is, my creation for the bag swap:

(Sorry, this is a very picture-heavy post…)

I made this bag following a pattern from my favourite bag-related resource – U-Handbag. It is Lisa’s Expandable Pack It In Tote pattern. A great pattern to follow! And even though it used a lot of techniques that were new to me it worked out great! I’ll definitely be making it again – I’ve already had a few requests… 😉

The fabric I used is from my all-time favourite fabric store, sadly located as far away as Stockholm: Ohlssons.

Anybody getting bored yet? 😉

This time it was for my aunt’s birthday, using one of my favourite fabrics ever (the purple one). I bought it on a trip to Stockholm, at my favourite ever fabric store, Ohlssons. I don’t know anything about the producer or its name but love its vibrant color.


And finally, the bag:

As before, I also made a frayed fabric flower to go with the bag. =)

As I mentioned before, the Wasp Bag tutorial can be found here. And the tutorial I used for the fabric flower was posted here.

A change I made with regards to the original tutorial was to once again ditch the proposed pocket (which I couldn’t get my head around) and add a zippered pocket instead.
