Yesterday I made the small recipe card bag pattern from Amy Butler’s In Stitches book. It was reasonably straightforward (the pattern pieces in the book are printed so clearly). One or two little technique things were not obvious to me at the time but I now understand them for the next time I make this item.
What I wanted to make was a bag for my ipod, and this will be great – I need to make a smaller version once I’ve measured up the ipod, but wanted to follow the pattern through once to understand it all. It was a useful experience as I now understand how to put in a drawstring.
The fabric I’ve used is the same denim from my recent skirt, with a swatch of something I got from John Lewis a while ago – a big colourful spotty print which I’m fairly certain is by Prestigious Textiles.
