Here’s #4! A little bit of an experimental project ^-^ With this bag, the zipper isn’t on the top, but rather on the side. So you can open up the side to reach everything all the way to the very bottom.
It’s kinda crazy probably – actually yeah, it’s crazy. But that was one of the reasons I wanted to make free patterns for this blog was to try out new and interesting ideas :B You can always skip the zipper if you want.
Anyway, the fabrics I picked started out as the blue and purple accent colors you see. They’re this fine and soft corduroy and I love the colors, especially when I found they paired perfectly with this cotton batik I got on sale. Unfortunately, the blue and purple are just way too loud on their own, so I had to pair them with something more neutral. I found they looked very nice with some gray faux suede. Though finding it made me realize I have a lot of gray fabrics o_o;;
So the blue and purple corduroy got relegated to accent fabrics in a retro reverse-appliqué circle pattern you see before you 😀
The reverse appliqué is a little tricky if you haven’t done it before, but lots of pins, tape, and other products that temporarily hold your fabrics in place really help.
