Hello my Dear Friends! It’s raining today, but sun is also shining – how that happens? It was already summer with +30 degrees! But rain is good – nature needs that! I needed a make-up bag for my travel and also I needed a box to keep my make-ups in the bathroom. So here you are, ‘both in one’!
‘Crab with the bag’ was my first try. I needed a box for make-ups and because I had seen so many lovely fabric baskets, I thought that would be nice. But I shall travel also very soon, so why not to have a basket that you can also take with you.
I made the cover so that it’s possible to have turned outside. In this one I sew it inside, but in the second bag I made it better and it’s sewn outside and it turns beautifully.
It stays very well open like a basket and when closed it looks like this …
These bags can be filled also with so many other things. How about sewing applies, knitting and crochet tools, pens and pencils, with doggie treats or it can be even a small handbag or a necessary in a big handbag.
The outside fabric is ‘canvas’ = quite firm fabric and great for bags. That I have quilted with fleece and thin cotton. Inside the lace is made with ‘normal’ cotton. So all this makes the bag strong and it keeps well the ‘box’ shape.
I shall make an easy tutorial for this basket-bag before my holidays. So then you have something to do when I’m in North?! I know you have always too much time and don’t know how to spend it!
And once again my own little crab bag …
I have more this funny fabric, so there will be more crab bags!
Sometimes I loose blogs from my reader and that had happened to ‘Cabbage Quilts’! Luckily I remembered her address because of the lovely name and what I found … Cathy had made fantastic mini quilt inspired by sea glass!!! LOOK HERE! She shows also how she made it. Cathy makes so beautiful quilts, I love her colours and she is so creative and talented!
