Ok, so this is post no.2 on my bag series this week.
I've just the one Joanie to show you - she was v.time consuming and demanding to make, as I was adapting a pattern as I went!
This mustard velour wasn't easy to work with, but it's super soft and so tactile, you would be forgiven for just wanting to sit and stroke this bag!
The sturdy IKEA fabric adds structure to the bag, and as always, the base is reinforced.
Joanie is really a first cousin of Maud
because I adapted the Maud pattern to get this design.
This is a good tip for all you prospective bag makers out there, start with your first pattern design, and then make changes and adapt it here and there to get a new design and a brand new bag.
I would like to get another Joanie done for the sale in a few weeks time, just so she doesn't feel like 'Billy No Mates!'
Well, that's your intro to Joanie, hope you like her!
