I’ve been wanting/needing to make a bag to carry around my sewing supplies when travelling to quilt meetings and what not. I just kept putting it off because I’ve never tried sewing bags on my own before. (I made one with mom when I was little, but I’ll be honest, she did most of the work lol)
And then came Sara at Sew Sweetness and her love for drawing up bag patterns and creating tutorials for those us not so skilled in bag making. I immediately fell in love with her “Naughty Secretary Bag“. Her instructions were pretty simple and straight forward, which made this adventure much, much easier. I would definitely check out her bag patterns, especially if you are a beginner like me!
Since I was still a little scared, I used some fabric I acquired through my mom when she was cleaning out her stash. To preface the pictures, this fabric was BRIGHT orange paisley. I had no idea what to do with it when she gave it to me, but I’m a sucker for free fabric and couldn’t turn it away. SO…I decided it would be perfect for my first bag.
