My most lovely friend that is teaching me how to actually sew rather than fudging things together, has so far, very tolerantly, made 2 skirts and a pair of trousers with me.  This week as an excercise in how to take a pattern from something, she made a pattern of my favourite bag (read 'sack') and we stitched this puppy up in an evening.  I will work out how to make it in to a printable pdf so you can all have a copy too, but for now here's how it looks - and yes, it is made out of 80's  curtain fabric.


  1. Love the bag,so simple and so pretty.

  2. Thank you, I killed the original by using it to death, this resurrection is even prettier! xxx
