The first Mummy bag

Here is a picture of the first attempt I made for a “Mummy” bag for Raewyn.

The first Mummy bag

I wasn’t too happy about the way the handles were attached, but I also didn’t want them in the zip seam so I ended up doing another one for Raewyn.

The fabric for this one (cotton) was again from my nana’s stash, the floral outer fabric had been made into a skirt that looked a little crooked so I knew she wouldn’t mind me pulling it apart to re-use.

The inside has a large pocket stitched on one side and a smaller cellphone pocket on the other.

    Colours are very well chosen, I think.
