Sewing Christmas Gifts - The Flea Market Bag

The Flea Market Bag

I recently sewed two Flea Market Bags for two friends that have been fabulous at helping me with my kindy runs this year. This is the second/third time I have made this pattern. My previous version shown  here, is actually the shorter version of the pattern.

I added a zippered pocket and a phone pouch inside both bags. 

Version 2, shown below is made using Ikea fabric. I'm going to have to get more of that charcoal fabric. It's a real winner when it come to bag making. It seems to give the bags a bit of a lift. Version 3 also features the Ikea charcoal fabric. The printed panel is a section of fabric from Spotlight. I'm kind of in love with the print.

Enjoy your weekend.

  5. Great blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring
    writers? I'm hoping to start my own website soon but I'm a little lost
    on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like Wordpress or
    go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I'm totally confused .. Any tips? Thanks a lot!
