my creative space - purple bag


I was planning to make this bag for Cam's 'bag month' sewalong which I'm embarassed to say I've just looked to see and it was in August. Fail!

This is the verypurpleperson's reversible bag pattern, which is a free download.

Its quite easy (but it helps if you clip the curved seams before! you turn it inside out).

This bag is made with my own Prism block print and lined with Flower Press RickRack fabric in aqua. I've put a little pocket in the blue which will fit my phone perfectly. And I've topsewn with a different colour to the bobbin (woohoo!)

This is not the last version I will make of this pattern, though I might just fiddle with it a bit now I know how its made.

I'm scraping in late for my creative space, so go check out the organised people here.


  1. Great bag.
    I still haven't finished my skirt from Cam's skirt sew-a-long and that was much earlier in the year than the bag one!!!

  2. Love that bag, great shape and perfect fabrics.

  3. VPP's bag has been on my 'to do' list for ages too. Yours looks great - and I think the block print design on the outside is my favourite of yours, looks fab on everything.

  4. Love it! Better late than never. You'll get sooooo many comments on the gorgeousness!

  5. PS -adding it to the sidebar now!

  6. It looks great! I love the fabrics particularly the blue one.
    Now I want to make a bag as well!

  7. I love the bag! And I love the colours you've put together. And you've photographed it sooooo beautifully!
    Well done you!!!

  8. It looks great, I'm a big fan of the beige-aqua combo. =)

  9. Love it! And I love your matching nail polish too :)

  10. Looks great Susie! I've just got my ricrac fabric..thank you. It looks wonderful made up this way. I must have a look at this pattern.
