I stalked Beki's blog when she was in the process of making this bag! I loved it- it's roomy size, it's use of vintage sheets (my collection is probably way too big), and it's shape. When she posted the pattern for sale, I think I might have been one of the first to buy it.
It is easy, easy, easy! I usually mess up something when I am constructing from a pattern. I didn't do it on this one. Yay! I actually think it took me longer to cut it out than it did to sew it. A first for me.
It is roomy, for sure, and I don't mind that there is no interfacing in it. I definitely mess things up when I add interfacing to things. I need a class in interfacing. Interfacing 101. Maybe someone on Craftsy will offer one someday? I would take that class in a heartbeat! I just don't know how to use it properly, where, tips for using it, and examples of what kind works with what kind of projects. Oh, off topic...
Anywho! I love this bag. I have one tip- when you use vintage sheets, they are definitely worn in- soft and lovely. Sometimes when you are sewing two older ones together, it can be a bit slippery. I recommend you use one that maybe isn't as worn as the other if you can. It really helped with sewing this bag up easily. Or, you know, some spray starch. I always forget to use that stuff.
She has the pattern for sale here! I love that I can immediately download these patterns and set right to work if I want. If you have a large vintage sheet collection like me, this is a great way to use up one little bit at a time and make something useful and pretty. AND you can sell them too if you want! I really appreciate it when I buy a pattern and have permission to sell it. I haven't actually ever sold anything yet that I have sewn, but to have the option is very nice. It seems like so much work to develop and write a pattern and I would never want to sell something that I didn't have permission to do so with first.
