I bought the sparrow fabric Joel Dewberry's Bungalow line several months ago knowing I wanted to make a bag with it and it finally happened. The fabric and the pattern I used work so well together! I picked The Emily Bag from ithinksew.com. This is on my list (goal post here) for the 2014Q1FAL and I finished it just in time!
So, in the end I'd totally recommend this pattern for anyone. I don't have much experience making 3D things but this went together so nicely and it's tempting me to venture more into bags. I'm linking up with Finish it Up Friday. Thanks for stopping by!
|The lining fabric, while I love it, is making me a bit dizzy in this picture. I installed my first ever zipper like this and it turned out so well! It might have something to do with my awesome new sewing machine. It is now day three in my house and with it I have made a quilt (except the binding) and now a bag. My new Juki has breezed through both no problem. This was also my first magnetic clasp and it's crazy strong.|
|This bag is quite large and lovely at the same time. I really like how it combines form and function.|
|I'm six feet tall and a lot of bags just look tiny on me but this one really fits nicely!|
|It's so big it can even hold a baby! My little cutie is eight months old and sized like her crazy tall parents (my hubby is 6'6"). The bag is also really strong. It held her no problem so it would be fine for anything else I'd mange to shove in it.|
