wonky bags

Today I have a finish to share.

I made some tiny bags for all kind of sewing accessories.

I used wings of love from birch fabrics for the bag and some Kona cotton in bubble gum for the string. 

I totally love how they turned out. But I need to admit that it wasn't easy. 

I used this tutorial which seemed quite straight forward. And it was. But when it came to sewing the casing seam I really struggled. Wrestling the tiny bags through the machine was not easy and the seam was all over the place. After ripping and redoing it about five times I achieved these rather wonky results...

Still I like them. In fact, I think they are rather charming. 

Today I link up with finish it up friday, NTT and TGIFF



  1. So cute!!! They sure to make great accessory bags! Thanks for the share, and for the link to the tutorial. :-) May have to make some of these!

  2. Aw, they're super cute despite the wonky stitching. I didn't even notice until you pointed it out. ;)

  3. Getting tiny things through a sewing machine isn't easy. My six-year-old just wore a hole in his jeans, and I can't bear the thought of mending them for that very reason -- I'm just going to buy a new pair! Your pouches are sweet. I like the combination of pink and orange. : )

  4. These would be perfect for storing jewelry while travelling. Very cute!

  5. They look great! It is hard to sew small things...good job.

  6. Adorable! What a great idea for those wonder clips! I have a bunch and am not sure how to store them. So glad you linked up to TGIFF!

  7. These are so adorable. I am going to check out the tutorial to see if I can make them.
