Months after finding a great wool fabric, I have finally got round to my take on the oh-so-popular Tiny Happy Bag.
It is lined in a linen/viscose mix of a turquoise almost guaranteed to banish the winter blues. Just what I need on this dismal, dreary weekend.
When I finally got down to it, the bag came together pretty fast. I used a magnetic snap closure instead of a button which was a shame in a way as I had a couple of great button options, but speed of closure won over style this time. The interfacing I added gives the wool a really nice weight and the only thing that irritates me is the fact that despite careful pattern cutting, I totally failed to match up the checks on the centre seam. How do you top sewers out there manage it? I need to know, because the bag is a great size and shape and when Spring finally arrives, I may need to make another.
