For Craft Buds Craft Book Month, I decided I should blog about a project I finished back in April and I don’t think I have ever blogged about it. I have, however, put it on instagram before. Back in March I bought Sara Lawson’s book Big City Bags, and I was determined to sew something out of it. My friend CeLynn helped me make up my mind when she asked me to sew the Wonderland Bag with her. Decision made!
My favorite part of making the bag was when I showed it to my mom and she asked me where I bought it, she was very impressed when I told her I made it! That was awesome.
I was able to use some of my favorite fabrics in making this bag, on the exterior and the interior. I just love the print on the outside. I’m not sure why but it makes me very happy.
There were two parts I struggled with, the piping and finding the right length handles. I will be investing in a piping foot for my machine the next time I decide to make anything that has piping, I think that will simply make life a whole lot easier. The bag handles I think are kind of a crap shoot, though I’m happy with what I ended up getting.
I love the interior too, I used some Simply Color fabrics that I have been hoarding and waiting to use on a special project. This was definitely the right project.
