Thank you so much everyone.  I'm glad you like it, I was a little worries that the bag was a bit too colourful, but it looks like I needn't have worried  Cheesy

Hello All,


Here in London it's chucking down with rain, what a great excuse to get the sewing machine out and make some lovely bagginess!




I have just finished a step-by-step tute for this shoulder bag.  It has satin ribbon piping on the top edge and the pocket trim, and I have made my stripy fabric just a that bit more fun by turning into chevron stripe.  I also used over sized rings on the handles to make them a bit more funky too.


To see this tutorial and lots more photos please visit my blog http://u-handbag.typepad.com/uhandblog/2007/06/piping-stripein.html

I'd love to know what you think of my summer bag  Grin

Hi Edel,

Thanks for saying that about my bag  Cheesy

My partner is from Dublin so I knew about the bag levey they have in Ireland.  It's so simple, intelligent, and it obviously works! 

I'm sure that if the supermarkets in the UK were sincere about cutting down on waste plastic, they would do the same as the stores in Ireland, but no, they are doing pathetic tokenism things like 'use your bag again and we will reward you with a 'green clubcard point' Err thanks, Tesco!

Thanks heaps everyone  Grin

I'm really glad you like it. 

One of my readers (Julia) sent me this intersting link about the amount of oil that could be saved if some of us used reusable bags http://www.cnn.com/2007/US/03/27/environment.baggs.reut/index.html

Betty (over at she's a betty blog http://shesabetty.typepad.com/shes_a_betty_single_girl_/) saw my bag and told me about this little contest over at Fashion-Incubator http://www.fashion-incubator.com/mt/archives/reusable_bag_contest_1.html

Good timing eh?

Very Very nice.  That fabric is delish and the shape is just lovely.

Oh and I can totally see where you are coming from with the make a ton of bags but no one for yourself!  I am just the same, it's beyond a joke!

Hi Folks,

I have posted for aaaggges!  I hope you're all well and having lots of bag making fun.  I just wanted to share my latest bag with you.

We all know that plastic bags are not good news for the environment, so I've made this bag to take to the shops.





This bag has a curved gusset (which is suprisingly easy to sew - honest!) and it's own stuff sack so you can keep this groceries bag in your handbag to have it handy.

If you'd like to make this bag please check out my step-by-step photo tutorial on my blog  http://u-handbag.typepad.com/uhandblog/2007/04/one_of_the_medi.html


I hope you like it; I'd love to know what you think  Grin

Thanks so much for your kind comments everybody  Grin

I'm pretty with the knots in the handles look becasue they are cheaper than chain, and quicker than sewing the end onto to rings.

Wow, VERY nice!!  I love the clasp/metal top on your bag.  I tried one of those once for a coin purse & it was disaster!  Yours is so professional looking.

If it helps, I have a few tutorials (with loads of pics) on how to use purse frames here http://u-handbag.typepad.com/uhandblog/how_to_make_this_pursebag/index.html

There are even pics of purses which have been made from using those same tutorials here http://u-handbag.typepad.com/uhandblog/my_tutorials_do_work_pics_of_your_finished_purses/index.html

That is amazing! it looks so professional.  I bet it took ages and ages to sew the applique on.
