I always have the aim of finishing all Christmas present making (or buying!) by the 31st of October: It allows me to relax whilst everyone around me panic-buys!
In total, I made 6 bags! In 3 different designs / colours!
That pattern and instructions were very easy to follow, and each bag took (me) around 6-8 hours to make in total – they get faster as you make more lol!
For 4 of them, I altered the pattern slightly, by allowing ½ inch for a seam along the fold, allowing me to incorporate a greater mix of fabrics (my friends were given a photo of fabrics and were asked to choose which ones they liked best!).
I also added a clip for keys on the inside!
My friends LOVE their bags!
Check out my beautiful friend, Jade modelling the bag I gave her!
