The MINI is just the right bag for smaller knitting projects, your sewing and quilting notions or even better... chocolate!
I am planning to make dozens of them as they are so handy! This one already loves in my handbag - a bag in a bag situation. But I am sure you get me. It is a thing, right?
Let me show you how to make this super beginner- and scrap friendly project bag. It's such a fun and quick little make and I promise, it's oh so easy. Only straight lines, my friend! Only straight lines.
But of course - if you like to actually sew with me. Why not join my on-demand Sewing Course: Project Bag?! It's created in a way that you can make your very first item within one afternoon/ sitting. Binge watch the videos first or sew right alongside me.
Five easy to digest modules cover the basics of bag making before personalising your project bag in the bonus sections.
Level: beginner friendly!
Materials for the MINI:
But before we get started - this is what you'll need. It's not a lot!
- fabric scraps for the outside, lining and casing
- cotton twill, bias tape, parachute cord or some sort of cute string
- cord ends (optional)
- thread for construction and coordinating thread for topstitching (optional)
- and of course a copy of the original Wee Braw Bag pattern with all the instructions for the assembly
I made this version using some of my most precious neon Betsy by Liberty. I only had a tiny piece left (thankfully not much is needed as neon Betsy is not cheap, my friend). I added some left-over gingham by Heather Ross and some plain gingham and used a Kona solid for the lining.
And that's it, my friend. Yay!
Ohhh... and of course - you'll need a copy of the free add-on pattern for the MINI.
Please note that you don't have to print out the pattern. It comes as a digital file, just save it on your device and let's save some trees together.
And that's it, my friend. You're ready to go.
Grab your original pattern of the Wee Braw Bag and your new add-on and get started today! I bet you can whip one up in under twenty minutes, my friend. It is seriously that quick...
For this size I decided to skip the extra pockets but of course - if you fancy the MINI to be like her bigger sisters, feel free to add all the pockets!
Let's talk about sizes!
As you know - the original Wee Braw Bag pattern comes in two sizes. The medium one (finishing at approx. 6.5" x 5.5" x 5" in wxhxd) and a small one (finishing at approx. 4.5" x 4" x 4" in wxhxd).
Now the MINI is smaller and even cuter measuring only approx. 4" x 3.5" x 3.5" (wxhxd). And if you are like me and those figures are just... well numbers... to you.
Then have a look at these two!
The neon pink Betsy one is made using the measurements of the smaller project bag from the original Wee Braw Bag pattern. And you can see quite clearly that the green one is quite a bit smaller... right?
I wonder though - does smaller always equal cuter automatically? Or does that only apply to little projects like these...
And that's a wrap, my friend. Make sure to get your free copy of the MINI add-on pattern and get started straight away. Remember no printing needed!
And turn all your fave scraps into gorgeous little project bags.
Ohhh... and if you fancy making a zipper pouch with me? I have a free pencil pouch pattern you might like!
Happy Sewing and take care.
