Happy happy happy! A day off sandwiched between a bunch of workdays turned into a sewing day.
A friend sent me a link to the Blooms bag by Yoan Sewing Studio on YouTube and it’s so pretty. I was won over and abandoned the backpack plans and made this instead.
It has a long strap for wearing over the shoulder or across your body, and handles too. Rather than sew the straps, I used lime green belting. I also used upcycled jeans for the base.
There are two sets of D rings so it can have a foldover top, or not. I had to use a coordinating fabric for the back as the camper fabric would have looked upside down.
There’s a zipper pocket with a slip pocket behind, on the front, and inside there is a magnetic closure, slip pockets and another zipper pocket.
I love it!
Two other small projects were finished last weekend. More scrappy zipper pouches.
The pompom trim was a last minute fix to cover a spot that was lifting and exposing the batting!
