Out and About Bag
One summer my sewing course ladies asked me to do a super cute and useful bag for them. So I went to work and created the ‘Out & About’ handbag sewing pattern. This tote is super easy, has an on-trend shape, recessed zip, side pockets and if you like even a front welt pocket.
You can make this pattern with feature strips across the front and back for Camper Vans, Beach Hut theme or anything else that you fancy designing. You could also do plain strips or appliqué a name onto it. I still had so many ideas, but 20 bags later I gave it a rest and now leave it up to you to come up with something spectacular!
You can make the handbag in oilcloth or heavyweight linen/cotton mix fabrics. I tend to buy mine from upholstery outlets rather than fabric stores. They have beautiful selections and you will be spoiled for choice.
