I Made It!

Ally wanted me to sew her a little bag, after surfing around I decided to try and sew her a messenger bag. I kept the measurements pretty much the same except for the strap since she’s kind of small. It took me 4 long hours but finally, its done! And I must say it looks pretty good.


I love the bright colours of the fabric, my only regret was cutting off the little bird’s head off cos silly me didn’t give room for seam allowance. I lined it with a soft, fluffy material just to give it a more padded look. Want to know a secret? Ikea has some of the coolest fabric around, lots of unique prints with bright colors at an average of $10/m. I bought some of the thicker material for the bag, don’t think they will be ideal for clothes though since it’s quite rough.

I’m so happy with the way the bag turned out, oh and if you’re wondering why mine doesn’t have a squarish bottom, it’s because I haven’t figured out how to square the bottom yet and decided to give it a miss.

Sewing Update

After many late nights and one sewn finger, yes I did somehow manage to sew my own finger, I think I might finally be ready to unveil my completed project. Stay tuned! By the way, lesson learned, keep fingers away from sewing machine needle at all times! I have two stitch marks in my nail to remind me .
