simplicity 4220 - Bag
Using up Batik from stash, yellow stash fabric and hand printed and embroidered (by me) fabric from stash!! Horray!
Pattern from Dress, Skirt, top, trousers and BAG - I made the bag
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
I would rather it did not - the pattern envelope is horrible.....
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Did not use them
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Lovely shape to bag - panels to add interest
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Added zipped pocket in lining
Added hard base
Added volume fleece to handles
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
This is the second time I have sewn it and I will certainly sew it again
I really like this bag pattern, though I think it needs an internal pocket (which I added). I also might adapted the pattern to have a closure (zipper or magnetic?)
