Now to The Companion carpet bag , pattern by talented Samanatha is easy to sew. The cutting and fusing took maximum time for me. Fixing the frame and meddling with screws took sometime to get used to . But that is the last step so it's a breeze until then
Sewista Applique is my personal touch to the bag. The bag has external pocket with invisible magnet closure and also has a inner mobile pocket and misc slip pocket. It also has a zippered pocket on the inside.
The bag also has feet at bottom to protect the fabric, my first attempt at using bag base and bag feet. Guess what I have used for bag base which is hidden between main and lining layers .
iPhone case plastic carton, which I cut open and used bag base, sandwiched between 2 Layers of fabric.necessity is the mother of all inventions ..yay!!
Now Adithi needs one as ..guess what for ...as her lunch bag, cause the frame is so easy to open and close. In fact she checked if she can use this, which usually I do indulge her requests, but not this time as this bag is meant for the Sewista !!! Need to order one more frame now... Frame is quite expensive at usd 10.5 with shipping . Which means 45 MYR for just the frame..but I had decided this year to indulge with a budget for my sewing fantasies and I am going to do it, have fun sewing and be happy in life :)
