Sweetie fabric bag

Another bag made from the fabric and pattern on my web site, this is a craft bag with lots of pockets, but would be just as useful as a grocery bag! I didn't make the fabric handles as instructed on the patter, as I was running out of time, so I used webbing instead.

Butterick bag patterns

This is one of the bags I've made from a  Butterick pattern, using the Grey Star and diamonds fabric, all now on It's quite a large bag so would be perfect for a sports or overnight bag, I think I'll put pockets in the next one!
