Welcome to my September Island Batik Ambassador post, For this challenge we had choose and make a By Annie Bag, I chose the Double Zip Gear bag 2.0. We recieved the whole kit which included everything we need to make this bag.
The fabrics i chose….
The Bag design itself is great, its got multiple pockets, 2 inside, 2 outside and a double top zip allowing you to open the bag very wide, The pattern comes in 3 sizes, small, Meduim and large, i made the Meduim size.
I struggled with the bulk on this when sewing together using my modern sewing machine, but luckily i have a vintage singer 201 which would literally sew through a brick so that helped me out loads!
For this project i also used Aurifil 50wt Thread in colour 2024 and using a Schmetz Micotex Chrome needle.
This bag turned out really pretty, im gifting it to my Mom, if you have been following me for a while, you will know my mom gets lots of handmade gifts xx
Thankyou so much for reading
Until Next time…
Happy Sewing! x
