The "Montana Bag"

My little neice Montana is turning 4 on Wednesday, so I thought I'd test my sewing and creative skills to make a present for her. I'd looked at some online tutorials of bags, and they were either beyond my skills (plus I was working to a deadline) or just not what I had in mind. So, I decided to jot down the design I had in mind and let my artistic husband decipher my scibbles and turn it into a pattern, which he did!

It was very easy, and I plan on making more. As with all self-designed projects, I've thought of improvements I can make to it, but I'm sure that Montana will love it anyway. If she doesn't, I already stocked up on some funky Smiggle stationery supplies to go inside the bag that will make her happy :)


  1. That's brilliant, I LOVE it!!! That fabric is so cool too, reminds me of Liquorice Allsorts!

  2. Thanks! I loved the "fun-ness" of the fabric, and all of the colours in it. I've still got a stack of it left, so I'll have to use it in some more projects ...
