Sew together bags

I finally finished my sew together bags! My friend Gina kindly (and calmly) fixed my dress for me last night as I had a bit of a disaster involving an iron and then realising it was possibly too big for me now too. While she did that, I sat and hand stitched the binding down on my pouches. I originally machine bound, but it looked so awful I unpicked it and went with hand stitching.


They’re in use already with toiletries in one and my sewing kit in the other. Fabrics are Alison Glass Field Day (from sample packs at my LQS) in one and the reddish one is Malka Dubrawsky’s From Outside In that was a mini charm pack from Simply Solids. The internal fabrics were picked by the future husband man.

    the pouches are great, but I’m more concerned about the dress… is it all fixed now? I hadn’t seen on Instagram which is why I didn’t weigh in to try to help. Did you get it to fit? I’ve got a bolero I wore on my wedding if that would help at the top… or is it too late?

    Hope you have an amazing holiday and an even better wedding xx

    So so much love and happiness and good wishes sent your way. (My aunt altered my dress and forgot to sew a bit of a hem. Had a panicked moment when I thought I’d ripped the dress when I stepped on a thread. In hindsight, I’m the only one who noticed.)
