REVERSIBLE BUCKET BAG versi tak sabar

I know i'm lack of patience. Especially when it comes to sewing, i normally don't procrastinate. Soon after i decided to join a sewalong hosted by Sue of MyBotang which was scheduled to be completed by 14th March, i take a few hours of my precious weekend to complete the project.

I sooooo love the result, mainly because i love those fabrics..and it is soo easy too. This one is gonna be a present for one of my good friend and I already plan of making a smaller version for myself. 

I'm using Lecien's Flower Sugar for the outside and Tanya Whelan's Ava Rose for the inside.Turns the inside out and have the feeling of carrying a Cath Kidston..:)

The boys love it soo much (or maybe they have nothing interesting to play with) they take turns (actually berebut) modelling it; Ariz with the stripey side and Hadi had the bouquet side. Until Abah said 'Budak lelaki apa ni..galas beg bunga2'... which apparently saved my bag from destruction..:P

And while i was at it, i make a simple pincushion from Tuna Spread Tin using remnants from my previous rag quilts, this reversible bag handles and flower button. A  very easy project that takes less than 10 minutes.

really lovely... did you use the fusible fleece together with the interfacing for this bag? we had so much discussions about the matter over at flickr and was wondering if you faced any problem while working with the fleece, etc..

Is the bag big..? what is the reason for making a smaller one for the next one..?

IMAN said...

Sue, i'm using the medium weight interfacing and fleece batting (not fusible)- it is not even glued, but apparently it looks ok with the fabric. No problem at all..

it's not that big, just ok depend son the purpose. I would love something smaller if i want to bring it to office (with a more professional/ modern design..hehe..no bunge2)

cantik sgt..
leh bg tips x..cane nk mudahkan jahit bias tape tu..
sy jahit n x kemas sgt ..so stop dlu..
sbb xlarat nk tetas dah..huhu..
tolong..huhu

IMAN said...

zue, bias tape tusetakat ni sy xde masalah coz urat2 kain pd posisi 45degree so dia akan ikut lengkuk or whatever bentuk bag. so far not a problem at all..so x tau nak bg tips mcmana.

unless kalo zue buat tape yg ikut urat kain either horizontal or vertical (not bias)..then there will be a problem..
