Making bags is one of my passions. Shoulder bags, back packs, cosmetic or baguette purses, I love them all! What a great way to get pattern into your daily life in a practical way. There are three bag patterns in the Sewgirl range: BROMPTON, which is both a Backpack and Shoulder messenger bag in one pattern, PORTOBELLO which is a ‘girl about town’ smaller shoulder bag and a BOHO bag which is a casual zip purse/bag.

All patterns come with actual size templates and a step by step illustrated booklet showing you every step of your bag making journey.

BROMPTON BAG KIT
Brompton bag comes as a kit which contains fabric, lining, pattern with templates,
metal bits and leather buckle.
Get funky with denim and a funky wild cotton print lining!
African fabric can look stunning with denim for spring/summer
Twist lock fastenings are great to use, available as an add on with the Portobello bag pattern.

Here is a good Noodle Head YouTube tutorial about inserting a Twist-lock (otherwise known as a Turn Lock) that may help you when inserting this type of fastening.

And a choice of metal sliders and rectangles in chrome or antique brass can be added to your pattern order.
BOHO BAG also comes with a kit including fabric, pattern and templates, metal bits, zip, pack of tissues, thread and Sewgirl label. Would that make a fab present? I think so!
