Moda Moments - part 2


As my new job is literally only a hop skip and jump from my own front door I just need a little bag to take my essentials to work ... phone, lipgloss, inhalor (I have asthma) and money ...

A perfect opportunity to use some of my new Swell jelly roll.

I hardly need tell you where I learned how to use a purse frame now do I? No .. didn't think so ..

The black bits of the bag are wool. So, I interfaced the cotton with heavy iron on, then sewed it all together with some additional heavy sew in to give it guts.

And this ...


Is my first zip pouch pocket ... yes .. you know where I learned that too!

Have a dry weekend!

I love it, especially the ric rac which I am too lazy to bother with. Those LL tutes are the best aren't they? I feel like I've done a proper sewing course since reading that blog. Have a great weekend.

Lovely purse - well done :) My first attempt went so wrong I've never dared try another...

What a lovely purse and a lovely blog! I especially liked the post on making bags using a cereal box as a template. Thank you for visiting my blog too!

Gorgeous bag! Thought I recognised a u-handbag purse frame there - I really want to try making a frame purse one of these days. Lisa's blog has such fantastic tutorials.
