There’s still some sewing going on!

The Cosmo Bag

It’s not all knitting around here. There is still some sewing going on too!  Some of Amy Butler’s new fabric arrived at work and I just had to make a bag.  This is the Cosmo Bag from her book Style Stitches.  It’s huge! And that’s just what I wanted, a giant, humongous bag.

The pattern was great, although a few more pictures in the instructions would have been helpful. In a couple of spots I felt like I was moving forward blind.  And because it is so huge, it’s an interfacing hog! Every single piece has interfacing fused to it.  I took a couple of shortcuts and left the interfacing off of the second layer of the pocket linings and I used up a lot of odd pieces of interfacing I had laying around. I ran out of the mid-weight interfacing used in the body of the bag and switched to heavy weight in the handles.  Who likes wimpy, saggy handles anyway. Right?

To make the bottom a little stiffer, I stitched a leftover piece of Timtex to the bottom layer of fabric.  It should keep it’s shape quite well.
