I am Soooo Lucky!!!!

Today is the day we can open our bags for the bag swap!

I was the lucky recipient of the bag made by Sahra. It is made from Alexander Henry Fabric and the pattern was the Lots of Pockets Tote Bag from Keyka Lou Patterns, available on Etsy.
Sahra has enlarged the pattern by 20%, which makes it a perfect size for me.
.
Sahra has also added a beautiful beaded zipper pull to the inner zipped pocket.
.
As the pattern name implies, there are heaps of pockets. I was forever searching around in my old bag, looking for things (actually, sometimes I would even upend the whole thing just trying to find my purse) so the pockets are exactly what I need.
.
I am so sorry, but the photos just don't do this bag justice. The bag is made really well and I am very impressed with the quality!
.
I especially found the internal zipped pocket to be quite impressive, as I know how tricky they can be.

Thankyou Sahra, for a beautiful bag that is perfect for my needs! I can't wait to take it out to show off to all my friends!!!

  2. Wow Sahra, the bag you've made is just stunning, the top stitching looks just perfect - fantastic job!

    When I first started sewing zippered pockets I used this tutorial: http://u-handbag.typepad.com/uhandblog/2007/02/zippered_inner_.html I found it really easy to follow :)
