I have a lot of fabrics which I have been collecting over the years and I’ve been wondering what to do with them for some time now. I found this amazing book on vintage bags by Emma Brennan called “Making Vintage Bags” and it has truly inspired me. This is a link to Emma’s blog www.charliesaunt.com
This bag is called “Dorothy” and it’s not too difficult to make, you can find the pattern here:
I’m not an expert in sewing (actually this is pretty much my first real sewing project) and I am rather pleased with the result. I’m giving these two 1930s style bags as presents this Christmas and I hope they will be cherished for a few years to come.
