Beginner Bag Making

This week on the podcast we talked all about bag making. It brilliant because there is no fitting to worry about but it can also be confusing. Between all the hardware, interfacings and fabric options it can be very overwhelming even for the most experienced garment sewer.

Check out the full podcast here:

After the episode I decided to help out the new bag maker by creating a simple free pattern which uses a single zip and basic interfacing. This is the perfect way to start your bag making journey and the Holda Bag is a brilliant project bag especially for little fibre project like knitting socks, Turkish spindles or even English Paper Piecing.
