A Perfect Project Bag and a Great Christmas Gift


We love Grainline’s newest sewing pattern – the Stowe bag. It’s a project bag that is quickly sewn up so is a great home-made gift idea for family or friends. Or you could even give the pattern as a gift to fellow sewers, along with the required fabric and supplies. How about one of our denims or canvases?

The Stowe can be made as a small bag or in a larger version for bulkier projects. It was originally designed with knitting in mind, but with its spacious main compartment and all its interior side pockets it could be used for anything really, even as a lunch bag!

And if the idea of making bags as Christmas gifts inspires you, you may also be interested in Grainline’s Portside Travel Set. This set includes a large duffle bag with a choice of handles and straps, a toiletry bag and a mini travel pouch.

Or for a really quick and easy beginner’s make, you could make a set of tote bags – check out our tutorial on how to make these gorgeous and super-handy bags. They are fully lined and an ideal size for carrying documents or even the kids’ books on the school run. I made one last week using Lizzy House’s A Lovely Hunt Unicorn design in violet. Originally I made it for my daughter but it was so beautiful I just had to keep it for myself!
