I am a bit obsessed with small bags these days. They really do not require very much fabric. It is fun to play with color combinations and find beautiful artwork within the fabric to display on the pouch.
I also just adore the patterns from SOTAK HANDMADE PATTERNS. The bags are very creative and also functional. The patterns are easy to follow with photographed step-by-step instructions. For my latest pouches, I used the SOPHIA BAG PATTERN.
For my first bag, I used the fabric from ANNA MARIA HORNER FIBS & FABLES FABRIC COLLECTION. I just love this magical tree. All of the colors she uses in her work are stunning.
My second pouch came from the new COTTON + STEEL SUNSHINE COLLECTION BY ALEXIA ABEGG. She is another fav designer of mine. I love the modern, whimsical art she creates in her work.
For my third bag, I used the COTTON + STEEL CANVAS MENAGERIE FABRIC for the main pocket. This is a fun fabric as it has gold accents. I tried out gold lame binding for the first time and I think I am hooked. This bag is a gift for my friend Sophie. I can't wait to give it to her!
My final bag is also a gift and also from Anna Maria Horner. Yes, I love ALL of her fabric! The front pocket is from her new SWEET DREAMS FABRIC COLLECTION. I am going shopping tomorrow to find fun treats to fill it with!
