The original bag was made following a pattern from the book 'Handmade Embroidered Bags' by Jenny Rolfe. It wore out quite some time ago and, I have since made another (using a very simple design of my own) but, I don't have a photograph of that one! Now the second one has worn out and a new one is needed. It needs to be reasonably small with a long strap that she can put across her torso, leaving both hands free for her to work.
As most of the bag patterns I have are for much larger bags, I decided to have a look on the internet for tutorials and I found a very nice one (via Pinterest) on the blog Susie's Country Garden. The tutorial was originally for a bag designed for travel documents but, I think it is going to make the perfect pager bag!!
It has a pocket on the front which I decorated with a little piece of appliqued sheep design ribbon.
It has a flap which you can close using the button and loop and it has a nice long strap.
It also has a pocket inside (I apologise for this photo but it is difficult to photograph the inside of a bag very well!)
All in all, I think it will be perfect and, I won't have very long to wait to find out if I am right as, the bag is already in the post to my sister and I am sure she will let me know!! I used some of my favourite Tilda fabrics to make it, so I hope she likes it!!
