This was the first project I wrote for a product suitable for a guy. It was printed earlier this year in Sewing World magazine.
Whether you are a male sewer wanting to make something for yourself or someone wanting to make a man a gift hopefully this project ticks some of those boxes.
I made this in a woolen fabric lined with a designer striped shirting fabric. I was temped by a canvas version with a quirky cotton print lining. Its great how the fabric you use can change the personality of an item and therefore suit everyone’s taste.
I found an amazing source of bag clasps and fittings which makes designing bags for anyone an easy task. Grizzly Green has all the bits and pieces you would need to make most styles from functional to decorative bag types for girls, guys and kids!
If you would like to make this project but missed the magazine you can buy back issues of the magazine from the Sewing World website. I am of course always happy to help you make the project at my classes too!
