Patchwork Bags – First Batch

So, I proudly present to you another Christmas present that I produced…

I followed Pink Penguin’s great tutorial for a reversible patchwork bag, adapting it slightly. I reduced the size of the overall bag by only making it out of 9 squares for each side of the bag. Of course I consequently also had to adjust the size of the interior bag and the casing of the cord.

With basic calculations I came to these measurements:
3 x 3 squares for each side of the bag = 9 squares per side = 18 squares in total
(each square measured the original 2 1/2” proposed in the tutorial)
As I left out 1 square on each line of squares, I “missed out” on 2” of the width of the bag (2 1/2” square minus 2 times the seam allowance of 1/4”)
I therefore reduced the length of the casing from 8 3/4” to 6 3/4”  while keeping the original width.
Equally I reduced the size of the fabric squares for the interior bag from 8 1/2” to 6 1/2”.
Apart from these adaptations, I used all the original instructions.

Voilà! =)
Aren’t they cute? Will have to make a few for myself too, should I get the time to. They would be lovely and just the right size to keep a bit of jewelry… 😉
