I first saw it posted here. I left a comment on this blog that I would love a tutorial to make the bag. FarahLin kindly sent me the name of the magazine that had the pattern, however I was unable to purchase it in Australia. Then, bloggers being the kindhearted people that they are, she kindly scanned the pattern and emailed it to me ... THANK YOU FarahLin
I had a little bit of difficulty with the pattern instructions, and had to use my unpick, but once the pattern was deciphered, it was very easy to put together.
It is quite roomy inside, and the idea is to pull the larger handle through the smaller handle to close it.
I think they will make great gifts, and I want to make one in Christmas Fabric (as a gift bag) and another in "elegant" fabrics for evening. They are large enough to pop your wallet, mobile phone, keys etc in, and the good part is that you can pop them in the washing machine to clean. The pattern was available in three different sizes, and this is the smallest size.
I really needed some-one to model this bag, so you could see how cute it really is ... it does not look quite the same just sitting on display. I may be able to find a model for my next one (or two)
Hope you have had a crafting day
