Summer Bag

This bag from Tilda is in this book called: 'Sew pretty homestyle' . I have had this for a long time and always wanted to make this bag and today I did!

It looks complicated but it isn't. In the book she uses no batting, but I used quilt fabrics so it gives a nicer feel with batting in between the bag. This way I was able to quilt the bag too.


The bag is turned and ready to close the yellow lining.

All is left to do is sewing the handles onto the fabric. My handles are a bit bigger than in the book but they will do the job too.

Like this. Forget the second blue line, it is a wrong one. The blue lines from the blue fabric marker is easy to get rid off, just with a damp cloth.
 This is how the inside of the bag turned out.

The bag my sewing room. Sorry the light is not that good, is was getting late last night.

 The quilting: just free hand lines with big stitches. I used cotton number 8.

I bought this lovely fabric at Quilt it & Dotty  Tilburg, The Netherlands. A very nice shop and owner. Sadly enough a bit far from my home, about 1 hour 45 minutes.

 I'm happy with my new bag. It looks like a real summer bag don't you think?
Have a good start of the week,
