Nothing beats that feeling of accomplishment when you turn your bag right side out to finally have a look at it when everything is in place. Ah, I really missed it.
This week I finally got the chance to sew the bag I had been planning on quite a while using fabric from Hawthorne Threads.
But you know what’s the saddest part? The fabric is almost OVER!
My plan was to sew a complete set of weekender+backpack+pouch+creative case using one fabric but turns out the fabric isn’t enough to sew a weekender.
For this backpack, I chose the bucket bag pattern Fiona’s Freeway by Chris W.Designs and added extra straps at the back to turn the bag into a convertible backpack/bucket bag.
I also altered the front flap as you can see below because the piping was giving me a lot of pain at the corners.
