It’s possibly one of the most essential fashion accessories we own – you can’t leave home without it, and it feels like your whole life’s inside… what are we talking about? Your bag, of course! But for the crafty among us, the bag you carry can also be a fantastic excuse to get creative. You don’t have to be a pro stitch-crafter to create your own crafty handbag, tote bag, or shopper – we’ve bag-making kits and accessories to suit all!

Bag Making…

If sewing is your craft of choice of course, then we certainly have plenty to keep you busy.  As well as a stunning selection of fabric in every colour, pattern and print, we also stock the essential supplies you need to turn those fabrics into a fully functional handbag. Our fantastic Bag Making Bundle includes a bag clasp, bag chain and a pair of D rings. It’s so tricky to pick out one fabric to show you here as we have SO many gorgeous ones, but this pretty Japanese-themed selection of Fat Quarters is new in, and features a show-stopping print that would dress up any outfit in an instant!

Of course, if you’d rather take a totally hassle-free approach to creating your own fabric bag from scratch, we have a selection of all-inclusive kits that contain the fabric, instructions and pattern you’ll need to complete the project. This pretty Design and Sew Rhiannon Bag has a fresh spring feel, and comes in two colour options.

It’s All In The Detail…

You needn’t be restricted to relying on pretty prints to bring your bag to life, however. When it comes to adding design to plain fabric, we’ve plenty of options for you to explore!

Screen Sensation provides an exciting and innovative way to get creative – for papercrafters and dressmakers alike!

Here’s what Stephanie Weightman has to say about the Screen Sensation range:

“The idea that it will engage and tempt so many people to dip their toes in the world we call creativity has always been my dream. It is so easy, the results are so professional and satisfying, I can’t wait to get the planet printing and creating something sensational!”

Learn more about how easy and accessible screen printing can be, and check out some of the stunning designs you can use to bring bags, canvases, papercraft projects and more to life!

Of course, if you’d rather get to work with a needle and thread, this pretty Printed Cotton Tote Bag Embroidery Kit from Corinne Lapierre is perfect.  Including the printed tote bag and all the embroidery thread to complete the design, it allows you to turn something plain into something perfect… and every time you take it out to the shops, you can show off your handiwork!

It’s In The Bag!
