M too

Sometimes M can be jealous, even when it's about a quite childish subject like this bag...

I studied Industrial Design, which is about designing serial products, but please don't ask me to produce products in a serie, even not a small serie. I don't like serial production (except for birthdays!). So I suggested M to sew this bag herself.


Last week after school she really wanted to and when she does I put all my own plans aside to be at her side. I always want to encourage her in making things. She chose fabrics from my stock and started. And finished that same afternoon! (She only asked me to sew the bird in white so it would be a bit embossed.)
Now her softy horse - what else? - can be carried with her. Compliments M!

Zie jij dat zitten om het patroon te delen? Ik maakte er eentje in de kerstvakantie, maar de maten zijn niet oké. Mona zeurt om beter.
En wat ik hier al zag passeren is de moeite!

Zo heb ik het ook geleerd. Doe het zelf maar. En nu zie ik Lauren een zwemtas 'ontwerpen'... Doe het zelf maar, het zit in de familie, denk ik.

@ emma en mona: to be honest, there is no pattern. For this bag I even quickly drew a new one on an old newspaper, the other disappeared some weeks ago already in the bin... But you can just cut a rectangle a bit larger than an A4, sides a bit skew. Then cut out a piece with rounded corners on one side. The bottom is about 10 cm wide. Because of this print we chose to avoid a seam on the high side.
Good luck!

What a great bag design for carrying around a little friend.

I so understand what you mean. Not one for making things more than once either. Very impressed with her sewing. Congratulations.
