You'll be amazed at what you can fit into these cute carpet bags. The clever bag frames give the bags a lovely boxy-structure and makes the bags very secure too. These cute and clever bags make use of an internal tubular frame. When it comes to security and convenience these frames are excellent. They are spring-loaded so they ONLY open (and shut) when you want them to. This pattern will show you how to easily use these clever bag frames so that you can make a unique and fabulously arty looking carpet bag (in 2 different sizes!) that is guaranteed to get envious glances from the girls. The bags are neat when shut, but pop them open and you won't believe how much you can fit inside. Mary Poppins eat your heart out! Inside the pattern are loads of clear photos to help you make a beautiful carpet bag minus the tears! I show you step by step how easy it is to achieve a professional, boutique-looking purse at home. Perfect for days out, holidays or just showing off to your friends! I am happy for you to make to: keep, give or sell! Visit our Bag Making Supplies shop.

Now, she spends most of her time designing sewing patterns and kits, putting together tutorials for future bag fanatics and sourcing yummy fabrics, handles, patterns and accessories.
