May I introduce you to.....

The Margaret Bag

Lola, this really cool and crafty friend of mine, found this bag pattern and made herself a diaper bag. Well, when I saw it I knew I needed one too...hmmm...or maybe two too. So here they are. Holynickel's Margaret Bags...

First up the Pink one. A girl has to have a pink purse. Why you ask? Because I decided. I found this fabric and thought it would be perfect. The print is really too big for me to make into clothes for Sweet Pea. But in the bag it is wonderful....at least I think so.

The next one...well...it is for the Birds....Super adorable white birds that is with yellow flowers.

And...did you see the button? I happened to find the perfect yellow and black button. The amazing thing was that this pattern was not that difficult to do. The instructions were easy to follow. It was really surprising for me.

I know I already have 2 of these, but, you know, if the right fabric presents itself, a few more maybe in my future.

BTW...you can make your own Margaret Bag. Just click on the link at the top of the page and get sewing. Did I mention the tutorial is free?

I think you are the first person to write the word "cool" in reference to my name! Thanks!

I love your bags! You've got such a great eye for prints. So when is the next big fabric buying trip? I'm really needing some guidance on what goes with what...

Hello Hollie!
I like that material myself! Wow! the margaret bags are pretty awesome aren't they....just love what you did with the pattern! What did you use or did you line the outer fabric portion of the bag? The "after" Easter dress is beautiful and so is your little princess! Simply gorgeous!

Hey Pam,

The pattern called to line the outer fabric with a layer of interfacing..then a layer of flannel..and then another layer of fusible interfacing. It really makes for a nice, soft, bag...but it still has body. I am not sure if it would work for every style...but it is perfect for this type of bag.
