Top zipper shoulder bag

Just when I thought I was getting better at my photography, I messed it up. The first thing I did wrong was I left it till the very last minute when I had only 5 minutes at most to take all the photos. And it didn't help that the sky was dark and so what I did was create a very poor environment for photo taking the last 3 bags I made. And then in my rush, I only took photos of 2 bags. I'll show you the photos of the 2 bags as I think these might be the last bags I'll be making for quite a while. Yes, this bag-maker is taking a bag break. It's been around 1,300 bags or so by now. But who's counting?


I'm really pleased with this bag. It's simple and it has a top zipper.  If you know me, you'll know this is the kind of look I usually go for. I don't like cluttered looking bags.


I took great pains to get the placement of the fabric print. This is quite embarrassing - a very blurred photo.


I interfaced the fabric lightly to avoid getting the creased look around the curves (and yes, I clipped the curves) but the weight of the fabric still created some ripples. Ah well, can't fight gravity.


I love this bag. I think people are going to ask the owner of this bag, where did you get this?


And so I love the zipped shoulder bag so much I made another one - this time using the nursery rhymes fabric. Oh, I absolutely love this one as well. Rain, rain, go away is so apt as the Singapore sky is doing nothing but that. Interestingly, I discovered that not every part of Singapore gets rain. Mostly where I live. Ain't I the lucky one?

Oh my April 2014 giveaway is still going on. It will end on May 12th 2014, Singapore time. I'm disappointed that so few people have taken part. :( Only 23 when I last checked. I'm now wondering if I should carry on with the next 8 more giveaways? Well, something to think about. If you wish to throw your name in the hat, enter the giveaway here.

Have a good weekend. Over here, I'll be working on my appliques patterns (to be published soon), a few tutorials, a haircut for son, lots of sleeping and I'll see you on Tuesday Singapore time to tell you who won my April giveaway.

Jane those bags are fantastic - the simple bag design puts the beautiful fabric prints front and center. The fabric in the first bag is really stunning - it looks like it might be a nice linen print?
