Phoebe Bag

I am so excited... I made a "Phoebe Bag by Rebeka Lambert" and it turned out GREAT!!!

The directions are wonderful, and they are free! I bought this fabric to use on a different bag pattern, but when I saw this bag, I liked it a lot better than my original choice. The only thing I would change is the kind of clasp I used. I sewed in a magnet in the front of the bag and the flap, but it isn't strong enough, so to reinforce this, I will probably add a small snap on that flap, too.

I love it when a plan comes together! I sewed this whole bag with invisible thread, and while it is a pain to fill a bobbin with this thread, I sure love how it covers your sewing sins - especially on the top stitching portion.

LOVING this bag... I think I will now make one in every colour :)

Are you part of the "Bag Ladies Strike Again" facebook group? If not... why not?!!! There are tons of free online links to patterns in the Discussion pages, and the collaborative talent on the site is astounding. Join today and be inspired to sew something, or share photos of some of your recent projects! There are over 40 sewers that have already joined the group, and the discussions are not just about bags, but any kind of sewing project you can imagine!

It looks fantastic! Now I really have to finish mine. LOL

I wonder why the magnetic snap wasn't strong enough. That is weird.
