Loving purple and teal! Two bags...

Bess just had to be in on the action (after all, Rumbles was in the last post!)

The satchel on the left is from a pattern called Handy Satchel by Catherine McMurray, published in Australian magazine Handmade (vol 27 no 9 2010). The bag on the right is from the Friends Hanging Out Together pattern ( I didn't do the stitchery from the pattern) in Creating Country Threads vol 10 no 12 2010.

This bag was made for Kieran's girlfriend at the time, Tyla Adams. There is a pocket on the front. 
This bag is about 26 x 36 cm in size.

The satchel was just a spare bag, made so I could try out the pattern - I sold it in 2014 at the annual car-boot sale at school to one of my pupils, Kimberley Clearwater.
Has a pocket on the back.  The satchel is about 40 x 43 cm in size. Fabrics were bought at Spotlight (the hearts) and the rest are from Kits n Things. 

Linking up with Amanda Jean's Friday Night Sew-in...


  1. Wow, tha is some bright purple and teal! They work well together and make great looking bags!

  2. Thanks Kate, I love all manner of colour and the vibrancy of this combination was calling to me!!

  3. Nice work on the bags. Isn't it great to have something that is original - not like all the other shop bought ones?? I've looked at your blog before and I think we went to T-col together many years ago. :-)
