Sara's Sling Bag



Sometimes it's really nice to have the in-laws live 5mins away.
So the while the sis-in-law borrowed the children for just over an hour I finished sewing up Sara's Sling Bag.

I had cut up the front the night before but didn't have nice fabric for the base so I bought some yesterday and popped it all together last night.
The thing about shopping for matching fabric and notions is that you really should have swatches with you to see how it will match. That way you're not umming and arrrhing at everything or if you're like me ooohing and aaahhhhing, wishing you could take it all home.


Here's the inside with two pockets made from the same beige cotton drill base.



And because I *heart* my serger I had to show you how I am progressing.
Hubby was really pleased at the results ; )
Money well spent, you see.


I just really love this oriental garden fabric I picked up in the quilting section of Spotlight.
I am thinking a lap quilt for the remainder of it.
So off to the postie today after my First-Aid session for Babies and Toddlers.
Hope you enjoy your bag Sara!

  1. Great bag - you have done a fabulous job.

    Love the close up of the overlocking! I think I may need to steal some overslocking tips off you!

    Is that book any good? I should get one from the library. If you have any luck with rolled hemming let me know!
