The Three Chunky Wee Bags
These were such fun to sew! The Chunky Wee Bag sewing pattern by Hunter's Design Studio. If you follow me on instagram, you've seen my feed this week full of these boxy bags. The pattern is clearly written, and has several quite clever methods for sewing bits here and there, you'll see what I mean if you make one. ;) I super love how the fusible fleece interfacing gives each bag structure and body, but is still squishy to the touch. I can see myself using these bags for all sorts of things, from a purse/bag to a camera holder, to a lunch box.
This is the large size, sewn in Cotton & Steel Ephemera (in peach).
The pull on woven top in last week's post was sewn with the same fabric, and I had a bit left over at the end, so I thought it would look really lovely made into a bag. This large Chunky Wee is paired with Kona solid in salmon and a Sailor Stripe by Timeless Treasures.
Lots of pockets inside.
This is the medium size here. Made with Sailor Stripe by Timeless Treasures, Neon by Michael Miller, a blue print by Amy Butler, and Kona solid in Bubblegum pink. This one has a button closure with elastic, and it's cute too but I prefer the velcro or no closure at all look more I think.
Here is the baby size, done in more Cotton and Steel fabric. Can you tell I'm a fan? I love the color ways Cotton & Steel provides, and the quality is superb. This small version is matched with a solid metallic gold fabric (I forget the maker) that I had in my stash.
This size would hold my camera nicely.
Here's a side shot so you can see the boxy nature of the bags, and the size differences. They are so cute to me! In the pattern you can choose between a cross body length strap or a over-the-shoulder length strap. The pockets are optional as well, which is great because if you use it for a lunch bag I suppose they wouldn't be needed.
This week a TON of new Indie sewing patterns have launched-it's been such an amazing week! I know these are on my list to sew very soon:
The Out and About Dress by Sew Caroline launched in Feb, but now the weather is nice enough to wear it! :D
What are YOU creating lately?
Happy Easter Sunshine to you all!!
