Practice Bag for the Mum In Law

Hiya! My Mum in Law has asked me to make her another bag, and she liked the Holly Hobo pattern, but with a zip instead of a magnetic snap. I thought I'd better make a practice version before using her fabric, as I haven't made this bag before, and I wasn't sure how to add the zip. So here's my practice bag! It's not perfect, and I'll be able to do the zip better next time, now I know how to do it, but I'm quite pleased with how it's turned out.











This is the Holly Hobo pattern by Sallie Tomato.

Cork Purse Obsession

Hi! I thought I'd make a little purse out of cork, but couldn't decide which cork fabric to use. I got a bit carried away! But I think they're really cute, and would be useful to clip onto a belt, or give to someone with a gift card inside.

















These were adapted from the Cork Fabric Card Wallet pattern on www.sewcanshe.com.

Elephant Cork Zippy Pouch

Hi! Here's a cork pouch I made a few days ago, to got with a Koda bag I made a while back. This is the first time I've made one of these pouches with cork, and I love it! I though the cork might be a bit too stiff for something small, but it's fine. I want to make more of these!

This is based on a free pattern, the Flat bottom straight(ish) sides zippy pouch, from Very Berry Handmade, although I do the zip tabs a little bit differently.

Elephant Cork Koda Bag

Hi! This elephant cork fabric is the first cork I ever bought, but it took me ages to bring myself to cut into it, it's so beautiful! But I finally decided to use it, and I love this bag! It's the first bag that I've made with 100% cork for the exterior, and I think it works really well. I used sakura blossom fabric for the lining.
