Bags Galore…

I’ve just realised that I have been a  little quiet on the blog over the last week or so.  I’ve actually been overwhelmed with projects, and I have been quite busy trying to get things finished.

A few weeks ago I borrowed Lola Nova’s book from the library.  This isn’t a sponsored post…I’ve included a link for if anyone wants to look at it!  It has some great projects in it and has a bit of a bohemian feel to it.  Lovely photography and fabrics.  I used one of the projects in the book as inspiration for my patchwork bathmat.  There was also a couple of bag projects that I wanted to have a go at.

I needed a bag to take to the library, to hold any books or DVD’s that we are checking out or returning. At the moment, I am using a foldaway bag from H&M.  The pouch for the bag is quite modern and has a geometric print on it.  However, the actual bag is just a thin black polyester.  Adam says that it is ugly and he sighs every time I use it!  The Vagabond bag in the Lola Nova book seems like a perfect bag for library visits.  The only thing that put me off was the bias binding; I declared my hate for it here, but I was prepared to give it another go.
