Choose Your Own Bag Adventure Sew Along - Baguette
Gosh things get a little crazy when you struggle to finish a project for your very own sew-along!
Thankfully, I had a little spare time Friday afternoon and I was determined to finish off my sweet Baguette.
Unfortunately the original fabric that I'd chosen for the base was an absolutely slippery slidey nightmare to sew with, so I ditched it, and found this beautiful soft grey wool blend in the stash instead.
Serendipitously, it was actually the leftover fabric from my You Sew Girl Beret (pattern)
One of my curves isn't perfect, but it's perfect enough for me.
I used some lovely red chevron fabric from the quilting section at Spotty on the interior, and instead of making a short strap (like my original Baguette), I decided to make an adjustable strap so that I can wear it short or long.
I absolutely love how this bag turned out, and I'm going to get so much use from it. I can't wait to swap everything over!
