I’ve got bag fever! Now I’ve started I just can’t stop.
This time round I’ve made a box bag with a fab ice cream print faux leather. I am absolutely loving the bold mustard t-shirt yarn but it had quite a bit of stretch to it which made it a little harder to keep a neat box shape once I’d sewn the pieces together.
I added straps to the bag after taking pictures as I couldn’t decide what to do but in the end I did them exactly as per the Panda Bag.
The best thing about this bag though is that it fits 3 balls of Paintbox cotton yarn in perfectly!!
As always you can get your little paws on the pattern here and it’s another one with endless possibilities for colour combos and patterns. Don’t forget to share your makes by tagging me as I love to see them.
I am absolutely loving all the faux leather I have found. It took me weeks to find a decent supplier of smaller quantities of tan leather for the tribal bag and once I did a whole selection of possibilities was opened up!
I ordered a few little samples and as soon as they arrived bag ideas flew out of my head. The first of which was this cute kids Panda Bag. Its bold, bright and really fun. Plus if you want you can just make the shoulder strap longer and its a small adult bag too!
Its made with chunky t-shirt yarn so durable and works up super quick. A perfect evening project and the bag would make a fantastic gift for any little lady.
The pattern is listed here for just a few of your pennies. The best thing is this design could work with so many colour combos and patterns. Have fun experimenting.
You could even leave off the strap and have yourself a fun little clutch purse! The possibilities are endless…
Oooo a little bit of alliteration to start our post off 😀
I’ve been working on this cardigan pattern on and off for a good few months. It started with my rainbow cardigan which I whipped up in 0-6 months and 6-12 months pretty quickly. Its been a firm favourite and sold well but sadly my little lady is no longer a baby so I wanted to scale it up.
I’ve then been working on sizes up to 6 years in a few varying styles one of which is this simple gold capped sleeve version
I kept it simple as its the last age range 5-6 years and will be perfect for the Tiny Human to wear on this years holiday with her new summer dress.
I love the little capped sleeves as it can be used as a lightweight cardigan in summer to keep the evening chill off or layered up over a long sleeved top or baby grow to add warmth in winter.
The pattern just needs a few finishing touches and then it will be available for both the rainbow design and a solid colour.
The only thing left to decide is – do I add a few flowers in blush pinks and creams or not?
