Oops!

I realised to my horror that I haven’t updated this page in aaages, and I have four (yes, four!) new Onbags to put on….As I have so many, I’m just going to lump them all together in one big post, full of Onbaggy goodness πŸ˜‰

The first gorgeous Onbag to share with you is the Buddha bag πŸ™‚

The front flap is made out of buddha fabric

This Onbag has classic red taffeta in the lining. There was only one yard of buddha fabric left at La Chakra, so we had to stretch it out πŸ˜‰ It stetched as far as the front flap, all the pockets and onto the zones – which I thought was pretty good!

Next up on the catwalk is a Musical Onbag.

First, the inside....so that you can see the lovely musical notes on the fabric :)

The front pocket has a stripe of print fabric across it to make it stand out ;)

Next, the front pocket with it’s snazzy stripe of print fabric πŸ˜‰

And lastly, the Onbag worn back-pack style!

What you can’t see clearly from this photo is that all the children in the family have their initial monogrammed in various places on this Onbag.Β  Now, that should have been an easy thing to do – but my new embroidery machine was super-stubborn, and nearly got kicked out of the window when it refused to do as it was asked :LOL: Finally, after much blood, sweat and tears, we got there and I was really pleased by the overall effect πŸ™‚

The final Onbag in this post is another one that I have embroidered πŸ™‚

It has taken me a long time to get going with the machine embroidery and I will tell you a little more about that in the next post (along with a few pics of embroideries that I have done πŸ˜‰ )

But after a few weeks, perseverance finally paid off, and I was able to download this lovely rainbow swallow design from Urban threads, and embroider it on the front flap of the bag. What do you think? I LOVE it myself πŸ˜‰

Silver grey drill fabric with salt and pepper print :)

And here is a close-up of the swallow, just in case you couldn’t see it clearly enough on the last picture πŸ˜‰

I’ll pop back in a couple of days to tell you all about my new embroidery machine, plus news of a little giveaway too πŸ™‚

Nadya, by Alexander Henry

This week, I have been sewing an onbag Classic and zones for Sarah, made out of purple cord and Alexander Henry’s gorgeous ‘Nadya’ fabric. Sarah has had to be very patient though (many apologies) as I haven’t really been all that well so it has taken me aaagees…It doesn’t help that two small people are rattling around at home this week, as they are still on holiday from school. It is really lovely to have them here withe their chatter and play, but it does hamper progress somewhat :LOL:

The little nook in my sewing room is still provingΒ  useful as a photography stand!

Using the handy side-loops, an Onbag can easily be turned into a backpack :)
