Island Batik September Challenge

The items used to make this bag were given to me by Island Batik as part of their 2021 Ambassador program.

Hi Guys,

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
