A few weeks ago I went to the charity shop. I bought a couple of quite scruffy bags. I bought the bags for the handles which were in perfect condition. I unpicked one of the bags yesterday. As I was unpicking it I thought I would make a pattern of the pieces. In the end I ended up making a bag.
I copied the pieces onto to scrap card board and quickly discarded these pieces.
The flower is made up using 3 sufolk puffs. (See tag “fabric flowers” for instructions on making sufolk puffs). The bag is lined with the same material as the flower. The blue fabric is from a pair of trousers that I grew out of!
I am not a very good sewer but I found using the pieces from the old bag much easier than following a pattern and instructions.
