The lovely Dawn from the studio has made this Strawberry Thief Knot Bag to match her gorgeous UGG boots. She has used the colourway Strawberry Thief L.
I asked Dawn about the sewing project. “I really liked the look of Alice’s knot bag pattern and it was easy to decide on the fabric. Strawberry Thief L matches my Ugg boots and a little scarf I made a few months ago!
I lined the bag in plain Tana Lawn in black which was a practical choice. I just made a couple of tweaks to the pattern by adding a little internal pocket for my mobile phone, and a rectangular piece of stiff cardboard (covered in some spare material) in the base of the bag to give it a bit of stability. This means it stands up on its own when I put it down.
I find that acrylic wadding works really well with the fine Tana Lawn so I used this between the outer and inner fabrics. It gives the finished bag a nice soft, puffy feel.”
You can buy the pattern here. The pattern only uses two pattern pieces which are full size in the pattern instant download. This means that it is a really easy and quick project to make. The fabric used is Strawberry Thief L. It’s a classic Liberty print and uses the famous William Morris design that he designed in 1883. It has been a real Liberty favourite since it was printed onto Tana Lawn.
I love the fussy cutting on the UGG boot detail. The birds are perfectly placed.
I hope this inspires you to sew something new today.
