I managed to sneak in some sewing at my parents’ house this weekend. I made this bag from my favorite japanese craft book, Machine Made Patchworks. I’m hooked on the zigzag now.
I love picking out fabrics for patchworks. This bag is a surprise gift and I thought the recipient would appreciate the origins of all the different fabrics I used. I tried to id them all over here on flickr. I love the note feature!
The magnetic snap is a little on the freakishly strong side. The bag is impossible to open while on your shoulder, you have to get both hands on it and pry it open. I need think of a fix for that.
