When Namrata showed me her (then) new pattern of Rose Handbag, I knew I will make one for my mom. I could not test it at that time because I hurt my pinky and could not do any sewing that needed "birthing".
And a few days ago I finally got down to make one. My mom loves florals, and she loves Blue and Red. So I picked this Japanese linen with Red Rose print. But of course, I have to make a set, with the trifold women's wallet.
This is my 4th bag from Bagstock Designs and I love how this Rose turned out. For you who started to sew a bag, don't hesitate. Namrata's pattern is always easy to follow with clear photos and instructions.
I used Japanese linen and dark blue denim and my Singer machine worked like a charm going through all the layers. well, except the one with the D-rings for the removable strap. So, I skipped stitching just a few mm from there.
I have a matching blue egg color polka dots which perfect for the lining and added a red zipper for fun. I know I'm going to make more of this bag! I need one for myself!
And when you have a pretty bag, you need a matching pretty wallet, right?
So I made one!! I thought of using denim and the rose print for the exterior but I changed my mind. Instead, I used denim as the interior base and love how this turned out.
I also tried a new technique for the interior zipper! I will post the tutorial soon! Subscribe to my blog so you won't miss the post!
I made the 12 cards variant. I think my sister will snatch this wallet from Mom. LOL. I hope I have a little time to make more wallet for my sisters before my trip next week! I still have few more wallet and bag to make.
