I was so excited to get to test The Littlest Thistle’s latest pattern, the Rainy Days and Mondays Bag!
I’ve always been intrigues with bags like this! How do you sew in the lining?? I’ve never known and I’ve always been intimated… But now I know and it’s not hard at all!
The pattern is now available in her shop and it’s really such an easy sew. It’s not the quickest sew, but it’s a good one and well worth the time you put into it! The pattern also has great tips on sewing with laminated fabrics. I choose to use vinyl instead, though.
This. zipper. This zipper top has spooked me for years! ONly to realize that it’s not hard at all! Hello! You’ve got to try it….
The pattern also has all sorts of fancy details that help add ot hte very professional finished look. I love the adjustable straps she likes ot include in her patterns. Like this one and the Mini Messenger bag that I tested for her.
And I love the inside fabric! I used to make bags and I always loved making the inside a bright contrast to the outside. I was looking through my stash and kept coming back to yellows and greys, until I spotted this hot pink print! The instructions for the inside pocket were perfectly simple! Oh, yeah!
Have you ever put feet on a bag? I haven’t! Until now!
You should be sure to check out the other bag testers on her blog. I love being a tester especially for things for me. I’m so bad at sewing for myself and this makes me sew for me by a certain date! I’ve already been using the bag for a camera bag. I want to make a few additions for the camera, but it’s just the right size!
