The pattern includes full comprehensive instructions for each step and has been written to be accessible by people who have just learnt to sew. We have included a brief construction summary for experienced sewers. We also designed these items with craft sellers in mind, the items can be made quickly to stock up your stall. The items complement each other in purpose and scale, sell them as a matching bundle or pick your favourites to sell.



We love scrap busting and this is an ideal project for using up left over fabric. Most of the pieces are small and require very little fabric. We are a big fan of fussy cutting when we are able, and we feel these items provide good opportunities for this.

These are easy makes and can be made with or without piping, lace and wadding to suit your own taste and budget. The bundle consists of a makeup bag, a mini tissue holder, an eye mask with storage pouch, a tissue box cover and three novelty eye masks (cat, fox & owl).

We all love sewing but there is always a cost. If you are sewing for yourself, as a gift, or with a view to selling on, what are you prepared to pay out? Our top selling pattern is The Betty Bag and we have sold many, many copies of this pattern to sewers all over the world. I have costed out my favourite Betty sample as an example.

Why Handmade goods can sound expensive but be worth it!

As you can see things soon add up and you have to ask yourself if you are planning to sell the bag you are going to have to price it very carefully. So if you are at your local craft fair and are surprised by the prices consider what goes into making one bag.


OR


It doesn't have to cost this much though. As bag designers we have to make our samples to catch the eye and it helps if the fabrics are from current collections.


There are ways to reduce the cost.


Bag furniture in particular can be bought cheaper if you know you are going to be making a few bags, buying singly means paying top price.


Bag linings don't have to be from a named designer plain fabrics can be bought quite cheaply if you shop around.


Polyester wadding is cheaper than cotton and has more spring in it than cotton which is better for bags.


Recycling, never throw anything away without removing any buttons and with old bags remove any hardware.


We have an item on our website about upcycling and generally scavenging for fabrics and reusable trim.
