Patchwork bag from fabric scraps

Posted by Carina Thavelin

This bag is from creative magazine that we used to produce many years ago. It was originally made on a creative 2144, a previous top model sewing and embroidery machine. But can easily be adapted for any sewing machine.

It’s so easy, just cut leaf shaped fabric pieces and iron them on a sheet of fusible batting, press and then sew decorative stitches to cover the raw edges.

I have included both the pattern and the instruction so you can try it out yourself.



Hope you have fun with your fabrics.

OMG! Thank you so much for posting this. I made this bag around a decade ago using many bright batik scraps when I got that issue with my new machine. I have had requests to do a class on it everytime I bring the bag to my guild meetings but I can't find the magazine anywhere in my house. It is not the exact pattern I don't think because mine is a little different, but it gives me a place to start now. Thank you!
