Duplicity handbag pattern from Sew Yours

Duplicity handbag pattern from Sew Yours SORRY FOR THE WONKY PHOTOS - I PROMISE THAT THIS BAG IS NOT LOPSIDED - JUST MY PHOTOGRAPHY SKILLS, OR LACK THEREOF ARE A BIT WONKY - TEEHEE Whatabout ye folks, it's Lee here.  I hope you had a relaxing and enjoyable festive season. And a very Happy New Year to you all.  I hope 2024 is your best year yet.   This is a new bag I made for my wee Mamma for Christmas.  It is called The Duplicity Handbag from Sew Yours . Not only is the pattern fantastic and the instructions very detailed but Melissa has a fantastic video to accompany the pattern.  Which is vital for me as a visual learner.   I love the combination of the ivory faux leather with the gold hardware.  I wasn't sure it would work, but I love how it turned out.  The front of the bag has a turn lock with pocket for storage on the front.  I just love these wee heart Chicago screws.  They really look great on this bag as well as providing extra stability for the handles. The back is

2nd Mia Everyday wallet from Bagstock Designs

 2nd Mia Everyday wallet from Bagstock Designs Whatabout ye folks, it's Lee here.  Do not adjust your sets.....this is in fact another Mia Everyday wallet , but slightly different and without the mistakes of the first one  that I made, teehee.  I know I use this Burberry style fabric a lot but I think it is so classy and can go with anything.   This one was definitely made better than the first one.  This time, I decided to give the wallet a bit more protection, as it is just fabric.  So I coated the burberry style fabric with Odicoat which is a water resistant gel that you coat over the fabric.  You brush on 1 layer and spread it with an old store card to evenly distribute the product all over the fabric.  You then let it dry completely before adding another even layer.  It gives the fabric a protective coating which I think is perfect when you want to make a wallet out of fabrics like cotton or viscose.  A big warning though, this stuff STINKS to the high heavens when you are usi

Handmade tote handbag - my own design - Burberry style bag

 Handmade tote handbag - my own design - Burberry style bag Whatabout ye folks, it's Lee here.  This bag did not start out this way.......at all, lol. But I wanted to share it anyway because although the original bag was an incredibly big failure, I think it's important to show how you can turn a failure into something usable.  Now, it is by no means perfect in any shape or form, but this process taught me so, so much in the bag designing and making realm that I thought I'd share it with you anyway.  I previously told you that I was working on another couple of designs for bags.  And one of them did not turn out correctly or anywhere near how I wanted it to.  Let me tell you, this bag designing thing is not simple or easy, teehee.  But I had already added hardware to the front body piece and made up the inside pockets etc., so I wanted to salvage the hardware and fabric I had used in the hope of making them into a useable bag.  So, with "Tempest my Temper Tool" in

Handmade Mobile Phone Crossbody Disney bag - Mickey Mouse

 Handmade Mobile Phone Crossbody Disney bag Whatabout ye folks, it's Lee here.  My niece, sister and her partner are heading away to Disneyland Paris.  And I wanted to make the 2 wee ladies something that they could carry their phones in and a few bits and pieces but that wouldn't be cumbersome for them to carry around with them.  So, I made these cute wee crossbody bags.  I followed a pattern and tutorial from Owl be Sewing on YouTube.  This is such a great wee pattern and could be used for any occasion but is perfect for trips away or festivals, as it's basically a purse and mobile phone holder in one.  And it is such an incredibly fast make and I made them using Disney fat Quarter bundles that I had so they are incredibly economical on fabric.  You could easily make these bags using scrap fabric.  Plus, the bonus is that it is a completely free pattern too.  Gina does such a fabulous job, walking you through the pattern with a step by step tutorial on her channel.  I hi
