Feature :: Fringed Faux Leather Shoulder Bag, Love Sewing issue 39

The editor of Love Sewing magazine commissioned me to create a fringed shoulder bag. What an exciting challenge!

I had a bit of a search around online for some fringe and I found this great copper coloured faux leather trim from my fabrics.com. They also sell it in silver and black.

Fringed Shoulder Bag for Love Sewing issue 39

I paired the copper fringing with a beautifully soft faux leatherette from a Rainbow of Stitches. I’m not sure whether Janet has the gold anymore but she has a great range of other colours available.

Somehow it seemed fitting that the bag had a chain rather than a strap so I went for a long chain from u-handbag.

The bag also features a magnetic closure, rather than a zip….so easy to install, have you tried one yet? Here’s one of my work in progress pictures.

Pebble Wash Bag pdf Sewing Pattern

Welcome to the Pebble Wash Bag pdf sewing pattern!

The Pebble Wash Bag is a sleek and simple design that is roomy enough to fit in all of your wash bag essentials. It features piping, pull tabs and a nice long zip to give you easy access to your contents.

You can make the Pebble Wash Bag all in one colour or add a contrast by changing the colour of the piping or matching your tabs with your lining fabric.

Sewing Level

The Pebble Wash Bag pattern is suitable for someone with Intermediate sewing skills. As with all sewing there is a need for accuracy with cutting out and assembling your Pebble Wash Bag. It can be a bit tricky when attaching the gusset to the main/sides of the bag so I would not suggest this pattern for a complete beginner.
