My friend Sølvi loves bags. She loves to start sewing bags too, but when it comes to finish them and they stop being flat pieces she comes to a stand still and needs help from her friends.
This bag is at least a couple of years old and at that time this bag pattern went around the Norwegian quilt world like chicken pox.
The pattern is from 1997 and has been discontinued now. I saw it on eBay earlier this year, but could not find it anywhere now.
Since I have already made 3 of these bags, one for me and one for each of my DDs the task of finishing Sølvi's bag fell on me ;-)
She will be visiting here today, so it was a good time to start this week so she can bring it home with her. We live half a country apart and do not meet in person that often.
Sølvi's old leather jacket got a new life as the bag bottom and she will make handles from the same jacket when she comes home.
My job was to make the lining with an inner pocket, join the pieces and put a zipper in.
By the looks of it Sølvi will be seen well in any crowd ;-)
May you find good use for your bag Sølvi !
