Overnight Bag/Artist's Tote

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I love this. I was so unsure of the colour choices I made but I am really pleased with the outcome. I did large orange strips but didn't like them so I puffed them out with wadding and that made a huge difference to the whole appearance. The animal print comes from the main fabric choice because there are giraffes, leopards, and tigers as well as pinks, purples and oranges. How do you deal with that??? This bag evolved as I went along, I am really happy with it. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just take a deep breath - that's what I do. Enjoy the experience!!

What you will need

  • I used cottons from my stash (didn't really make a dent in it)
  • wadding
  • stiff interfacing
  • calico for the lining. An old belt from the Opportunity shop for the Buckle!
