Dishy bags are a must for any busy household. Perfect for storing anything from toys to craft supplies. Make them in any size to suit your needs. This bag has a nice wide base so you can rummage/sort/play/work/craft/etc with ease. When you want the mess to go away you can simply draw up the bag and hang it up, or store it in a room corners - ahh all tidy again (in mere seconds). Read about and see more pics of the Dishy Bag here. Things we love: Really easy to make - once you chosen your size, the bag is quick to whip-up. To make life even easier I have included instructions for a med-sized bag. Really useful - most anyone will have a use for these bags Really clever - the bags work brilliantly as mobile play/craft areas. I use our Dishy bag to lug around my daughter's toys on outings. Really flexible - follow the instruction to make Dishy bags to any size you want. Really cool - choose fabrics to match your home. The large circular shape lend itself well to show casing your fave fabrics. Visit our Bag Making Supplies shop. We stock all you need to make the bag pattern.

Once upon a time, Lisa Lam received lots of lovely off-cuts from a curtain maker and thought they might sell as bags. Boy was she right! During her bag-sewing escapades, Lisa realized the supplies she needed weren't as easy to obtain as they should be. That's how her site,, was born! 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. She's also the author of two best-selling bag books: <i>The Bag Making Bible</i> and <i>A Bag for All Reasons</i>.
