Been a while since I posted. Bit busy with the October show and then I seemed to lose my mojo for a couple of weeks - no sewing!
But I'm over it now and have made up a new pattern that we received in the last couple of weeks. It's called the Lollipop Bag and it's by Atkinson Designs. I like Terry Atkinson's patterns - they are well laid out, easy to follow, practical, fat quarter friendly.
The pattern has instructions for 2 different size bags and of course, once you've made it once or twice, it would be easy to alter the size to suit your requirements.
I made both size bags. The large one I made in Aneela Hoey fabric mixing up her ranges Sherbet Pips & Little Apples.
These little bags have a secret contrast bottom so that they stand up easily but lay flat when they are not being used. In the photos below, I have laid them flat and you can just see a hint of the colour of the bottoms - red for the large one and green for the small one.
All in all, a great little pattern, I think. These would be great as make-up bags, toiletry bags, little sewing kits - the list is endless.
You can find the pattern and the hardware here.
