I appreciate it’s been a bit quiet round here – I missed posting last Sunday, fairly unheard of for me! Behind the scenes I have been busy pattern testing. First up I have pattern tested for Delinda Boutique. The Liliane Bag is the first of Maria’s designs I have sewn, I was not disappointed!

Of course I immediately warmed to the pattern with the suggestions you can upcycle fabrics. You are given the measurements required if you upcycle a sweater.

Lilian Bag Side

I chose to work with a great black denim skirt with tiny white polka dots, and a red curtain. The pattern comes together as a relatively quick and simple sew – I thought it was going to be more complex, I love the fact it is a quick make. The instructions are well written with lots of useful information, no assumptions are made about existing bag making skills.

Lilian Bag inside

The bag includes two internal pockets, one slip and one zip. Plus one large pocket externally – the whole denim area is a pocket. This is a roomy bag, perfect for a magazine, book, tablet, and all your necessities.

Lilian Bag detail

I used fusible fleece to add some strength to my fabric. This was my only cost, plus the buckle and zip – an affordable make too!

If you are looking to start bag making this pattern is perfect, creating a stylish bag. Alternatively this one is available in my Etsy shop🙂

    I love the combination of the denim and the red, it’s a very striking duo. I like the zip pocket in the inside, it’s good to have a safe place for keys or purse.

    The pattern doesn’t look that simple so it’s encouraging to read that it isn’t too difficult and also that it leads itself to recycling fabrics! I always look for pockets when making or buying bags and this is ok on that score!

      I am going to be sad when I have run out of the red curtain – not too much left:( I love the fact the designer encourages recycling.

      I love the denim with mini polka dots – I have been saving it some time for the perfect project:)

    Love your bag this week, think it must be the week for bags. I do like the front pocket as part of the design and may give the pattern a go.

    That looks both stylish and practical. I love a few extra pockets in a bag.

      For me there is a level of pockets – too many and I spend too long searching for my car keys!!!!

    Beautiful and great to hear it’s easy for beginners – It doesn’t look it. It’s definitely tempting me to have a go at bag making.

      Thanks Vickie, I think!! Always keen to promote upcycling:)

    What a beautiful bag! I had spotted it on my fb feed the other day and thought how pretty it was! I love a bit of upcycling! It makes all the difference in the world doesn’t it when you have a pattern that is easy to follow and makes it even more wonderful when the finished bag looks really hard to make! XX
