Did you know labour and bag making really do mix ;P

Hi everyone

As you know the Small Little Monster arrived recently, and while I was in labour, I decided to try and distract myself with sewing!

It worked - sort of - I think ;D

Either way, I did finish my Sling bag, a free pattern by "At home with Mrs H" , while in labour :)

I reused the strap from an old handbag, so I didn't have to actually make that part - which made the creation of this bag much faster!

This was such a great free pattern!  The instructions were very easy to follow, and the whole sew was really quick.  I think this bag would make a great 1st sew if you have never sewn a bag before as the techniques used to construct it are all quite basic and straight forward.  I will definitely be making more!

The fabrics I have used are:
Outer - AMH field study (purchased from hotpossum on IG during a destash sale)
Lining - Grey homespun (purchased from spotlight)

I haven't had a chance to actually use the bag yet...but hopefully I will at some point soon :)
