birch sling bag

I wanted to make something bright, cheerful and special for a close friend who's going through a tough time. So what better than a beachy sling bag made of the sunniest coloured Birch ever. With a bag design by no other than Suzie Fry:

Gold Birch Sling Bag - finished! Designed by Suzie Fry, pattern available here

If you'd like to make one yourself, we sell the pattern in our shop, and it just needs half a metre of our fabric to go with.

I gave the bag to my friend over the weekend and she loved it :)

It is so lovely and very cheerful! You sewing desk is so neat and sweet too. How do you manage that? I have yet to keep mine neat and tidy for more than a few days! Hope you friend comes through this rough patch soon.

Hehe thanks girls! Christina - it's only neat and tidy because we have 200sqm of studio messy-ness at work ;)
