Description

Pattern: Wasp Bag

Main Fabric: Striped cotton/elastane remnant from Tessuti Fabrics

Lining: Viscose/linen blend. Leftover fabric from my BurdaStyle book project from Tessuti Fabrics.

Notions: Metallic snap fastener and vintage buttons from the stash.

Notes:

I stayed up late to sew this (ahem 2am) and discovered after i finished that i had sewn the handles on the same way instead of the petals being on opposite sides, not that it matters.
I added a key clip inside the bag (which is part of the pattern instructions.
I didn’t add the inside pocket. I want to make a bag organiser to fit inside instead.

    very sweet bag. wondering if you made the bag organiser in the end, and if so, did you use a pattern? have been tempted to buy one but making one sounds much more fun …

    I love the colors you used! When you printed this pattern, did you do it at 100%?

    I really like this bag and how the handles are asymmetric- a really nice touch.
