The first two I made were birthday presents, so I decided to make one for myself as well, since I really love the pattern. 'Sister of'
did a great job with that pattern, I think.
I started off with a sturdy linnen one in de colors dark grey for the outer fabric and mid grey for the lining. Once the bag was finished, I thought it was more of a bag for winter. I had some blue jeans left overs from another project and I saw a lot of tacky dutch cotton on the market. Most was very cheap and with the current World Championship Soccer craziness here in the Netherlands, I couldn't resist. I made a second one, for more casual use, from the blue jeans with the tacky dutch cotton.
First the casual tatanne:
Side views (I added a button and button hole on both side pockets this time):
Peek inside (I added a key chain this time):
And the winter tatanne:
Top view/ peek inside:
Seeing the blue jeans one finished, I can easily see how it's a great bag to pimp up with beads, or ribbons, or applications. Maybe if I ever make one again, I will consider pimping it.
