My Creative Space

I have missed joining in the My Creative Space link up and am so excited I have actually made something to share this week.

I had the day off work so I constructed a new little bag made of Japanese canvas fabric and lined it with some Prince Charming by Tula Pink. I sewed most of this handbag using the serger which I must say cuts sewing time down immensely. It's so fast!
I thought a little button to connect the two straps together would be cute and different and I really like how it came out.

I haven't used canvas fabric before in bags but will definitely try it again. It made the final bag have a great weight without having to use interfacing which I really don't like to use. I know most people like interfacing in their bags but to me it ruins the feel of the fabric.
Anyways it's back to sewing small little projects until my invisible zipper foot arrives at my LQS. It's been on order for almost 3 weeks and my garment projects are piling up!!!!


  1. That is a really nice bag...well done! :-)

  2. Cute bag! Love the fabrics you put together for this one. I also really love how you did that handle, with the button attaching the two sides.

  3. The bag looks great - I like the print. I might have to look into getting an invisible foot as well - I really want to sew some clothes for me and putting it off because of the zipper component.

  4. I love the style of your bag and the fabric is adorable :)
