Tote bag

Post by gingerjo on Mon 19 May 2014 - 22:36

Not competing with Lorraine. I needed a wee bag for when walking the dog. As its summer I lack pockets and need somewhere for keys, phone, poo bags etc, so made this. Its material from a sample upholstery book. Shower curtain lining and an old belt for the strap. It was too thick to sew through all the layers so I had to hand stitch the lining in! All a learning curve.

Well, it isn't a competition Jo, lol. That's smashing and how handy. Great idea hun.

It's surprising what you can come up with isn't it? A shower curtain? Who'd have thought!

What a great idea, Jo - and good idea for the lining, especially if you have an old shower curtain: they often go at the bottom but the rest is OK.

Great idea for a dog walker, I'd love one of those when I am out with Mum and dad's dog.

Was a new shower curtain I am afraid. They have amazing ones in Primark. I used it for the base of a dog mat but there is loads left. Makes a protective lining for a bag, hopefully.
