We're making the bag that you all love

Posted on


A couple of years ago my mum made me, completely by hand (no sowing machine), a rather gorgeous 'bucket bag'- a sort of over the shoulder bag that sits on the hip. The fabric is red and white cotton stripes with a spotty green lining.I love it and have had so many comments on it that I decided we ought to commission some of these for The Wise House.

I found a lovely local seamstress, 'hello Carla', who used to have a shop on Portobello Road no less so she knows her stuff inside out. She has made up the pattern and at the weekend I bought some gorgeous, bright fabrics which will be combined to give roughly 4 different bag designs. The bags will also be reversible. They are perfect for the Spring, Summer months and look really striking.

Here's a pic of the materials all laid out and ready to go.
