Anne, Heather, and I decided to chose a much harder project for our Sewing Club Summer Edition 2010 adventure (at least harder than the one we chose for last summer). So we chose the Tabitha Bag, a gorgeous bag that I’ve admired for a long time from the blog, Flossie Teacakes. It turned out to be quite complicated but oh so satisfying to make in the end. This was my first time sewing with linen. And yes, it’s hard to sew with it. But I love how the bag turned out and I even already had one offer to buy one should I decide to make them as a business! (This coming from a Crate and Barrel employee!)
We were particularly attracted to this bag because of all the gorgeous details, such as the pleats and narrow fancy fabric on the outside and the additional fancy fabric strip on the inner pocket.
I am also a big fan of the polka dots that I chose for the lining!
We do need to take a picture of all three of us with our awesome Tabitha bags!
