Pleated bucket bags

Almost didn't make this weeks handmade Monday. A manic week at work and then visitors over the weekend has made the time fly by with barely a glance at the sewing machine.

I started making these pleated bucket bags a few weeks ago...
...and finally got around to finishing them and taking some photographs.


One of them has already been sold from my Facebook page, along with a request for a matching metal frame purse. Looks like it's going to be a busy time with the glue next weekend!

  1. Sounds like a busy week. Love the bags, the spotty linings go so well with the pretty fabrics and they have a lovely spring feel, don't they?

    Have a great week,
