for my sewing machine, but unfortunately when I went to order they were on back order forever. Who knew that something so simple would be so hard to get.
After waiting almost 6 months, lesson learned and I order 2.
What to do while waiting; fabric shop…
Recently I was walking through the fabric store, I found two lovely fabrics that I thought would make really nice carpet bags. I used two of my favorite style purse frames, a 8″ inner tubular metal frame. I love how simple using these frames are. They are self-closing, easily work with bags, are available variety of sizes from 8″ to 16″.
The first is a larger version of the classic Mary Poppins carpet-bag.
I used a beautiful purple vine upholstery fabric and added a multi-colored one, with dual outer pockets, to reinforce the bottom of the bag. I also added silver purse feet and that cute heart key ring.
Next bag is slightly smaller in that wonderful dark blue leaf upholstery fabric.
See the wonderful raffia detailing I added, and the cool colored handles.
Well back to sewing…
