I was so happy when my midwife had commented on the handbags on my website, she likes them to be a bit bigger than I usually make, so it was the perfect excuse I needed to get back to my (much missed) sewing machine.
In the end I picked out the Kaffe Fasset 'Paisley Jungle' print, as I think it suited Lisa the best. I quickly drafted a new pattern, based on the same simple rectangular one I always use, just made this one taller and wider. In the end this one measure 36cm tall, 26cm wide and the base is 10cm too, so it is nice and roomy!
Complete with my now standard zippered pouch, inner pockets, key chain holder and magnetic snap closure.
I was so happy with how this bag turned out, I really love the bigger size and actually need to make another one for me as I think it would be perfect for quick trips out to the shop instead of taking my really big nappy bag. This bigger size would easily fit in my purse, phone, keys, a couple of nappies, wipes and a change of clothes! Now the hard part....... deciding which fabric I want for my own lol!
