Pleated Lined Bag


My bag obsession continues. I made this one today and I love it! My sister wanted one like this so I thought I would try it out first before I use my beloved Michael Miller fabric just incase I made any major mistakes. Ive never done pleats before so was a bit unsure at first but I got the hang of it after a few attempts. I still have to top stitch it as I ran out of thread but overall am really pleased that I managed it.

Its got a few pockets inside too as you can see. I made some piping to use with it too but decided against it as the fabric is quite "busy" anyway. Here is the brilliant tutorial I used to make it. I love the fabric in the tutorial as well but its not available in the UK unfortunately.

Well that was my Crafty Sunday project. Now Im off to make book bags with my new oilcloth!!

  3. That is beautiful it looks to be a good size too on the tutorial! I like all the little pockets and duckets inside too, that's always something that attracts me to bags(where can I stash my crap?) Your fabric is lovely and the lining is just as lovely! Love it!

  4. Hi there! I just noticed today that you are a new follower to my blog...thanks so much! Thought I'd come over to see what you're up to. I love your new bag - that fabric is so cute! I have that tute saved in my patterns file, but haven't made it yet. Think I'm going to have to pull it out and give it a try after seeing your bag!
