I have dabbled in bag making since I was at uni, but really got into back in 2011 when I joined in a sew along for Amy Butler’s Style Stitches book. That was one of the last times I have followed a pattern since, except for a few by my lovely friend Sara. I love making bags, and spend quite a lot of my life daydreaming up new patterns and variations.
I apologise for the early photos, I struggled for a long time to find a satisfactory arrangement for bag photography, having no garden, and at the time no spare place to hang things up.
