Wool Plaid Bucket Bag


I found some subtle wool plaid in my stash, and matched it with a brown and blue cotton print, and made up this bucket bag. Usually I like to keep my bags on the floppy side, but this one is interfaced to be fairly structured. I love the gigantic covered button--I had some from the thrift store and couldn't imagine them on a garment.


But a bag, yes! And it's in the shop tonight.

What kind of interfacing did you use? I haven't found bag interfacing I'm completely happy with.

Erin said...

I just bought it. :)

Anna said...

Thanks, Erin!

Rebecca, it's just heavyweight dressmaking interfacing, not designed for bags.

No no no, Erin ! I want it! Anna: any possibility of making another one?

rats, I missed it - I'm looking for a largish sturdy bag to haul all my work clobber. I *guess* I could make one. . .

I just put two more wool bags in my shop--they're a much plainer shape, but very stout and heavy-duty, out of the same fabrics. Take a look!

They must have been bought before I got there; I don't see them.

I am such a fan of plaid! Looks great.

Can you tell us about your sewing machine some time? I am in the market for one that doesn't whine about heavy fabric.

Is this your own pattern? I love the bag. If it is do you sell your patterns?

Carolyn, this is very similar to bag patterns in lots of books and magazines--I was inspired by every Japanese craft magazine I own, as well as a couple of bag-sewing books. The bucket shape is classic, just sewn to an oval bottom. Wide bias strips to finish the top.
