I was in needed of a little gift to an acquaintance, but the closet was empty of such little things right now. Then I had to start looking for a good sewing project. Came across a recipe for a shopping bag on Birthe's room and found that this was worth a try.
Handlenettet er sydd uten fòr, derfor er sammensyingen gjort med Fransk søm slik at nettet ser fint ut inni også.
The shopping bag is sewn without lining, so the sewing is done with French stitching so that the net looks nice inside too.
Til hanker har jeg brukt gjordebånd på den blomstrete, på de to andre har jeg sydd hanker av samme stoff som nettet.
For hanks I have used finished hanks on the floral one. On the other two I made hanks in the same fabric as the net.
The recipe was easy to understand and the end result looks good!
There is a pocket inside which the bag can be folded into, very handy. The shopping bag will then easily fit in a purse.
As usual when I start on such small projects, I can't decide on one fabric, so this time I sew three shopping bags. Then I have a few small gifts for a later occasion.
Ønsker alle en flott dag!
Siden det er mandag i dag linker jeg til Bambisyr og LoveLaughQuilt, ta en tur innom linkene her for inspirasjons bonanza!
