Flea Market Bag
Ok, bag two is done. Woo-hoo! This is my "intermediate" bag. I used the Flea Market Bag pattern by Grand Revival Designs. Tanya gives you so many options with this pattern. Small bag, large bag, shoulder strap, body strap, pockets, etc... This bag is meant to be reversible so even though you can, I decided not to use a pocket or button closure. I used County Fair by Denyse Schmidt which is a home decor weight fabric. I am smitten with this print! I didn't use interfacing this time and I kind of wish I did. The fabric itself has enough body but the interfacing adds a nice clean finish to the bag.
I added a little flower. A posie for my posie bag. It's loosely based on this tutorial at wisecraft.
It's great. Compared to quilting you don't need many tools to make a bag. I used this pile and a roll of freezer paper. Do you do use freezer paper? I use it to copy and cut out all my patterns and I really like it. It keeps the original patterns in tact and it temporarily fuses to the fabric making it really easy to cut out your pieces. Highly recommended! I bought mine at the grocery store. : )
