I was very excited when Caitlin from Pippijoe asked me to test out a gorgeous new pattern for her Sling Bag. This was my first gig as a pattern tester, so I was also a litle bit nervous. Luckily I need not have been. The excellent instructions make this stylish bag very straight forward to construct. Its the perfect project for an afternoon or evening of sewing.
The bag is lined and ties to create an adjustable strap. A cute inclusion with the pattern is a mini-version to sew up for a favourite small person in your life.
My bag has been made up in Pippijoe's striking Pebble in Fiery Red. The print is really vibrant and the cotton-hemp blend fabric is a dream to sew with.
Both Pippijoe's Sling Bag pattern and Pebble print are available here.
