Tudor Bag in Liberty of London and Essex Linen

I received some Christmas money from my parents in December and I used it to buy some beautiful Liberty of London fabric which I ordered from the Work Room in Toronto. I had plans to make myself a Tudor Bag with it.

Today is my birthday and I decided on Friday to make the bag so I would have it for my special day.

This bag is made with the Tudor Bag pattern by Sara Lawson of Sew Sweetness. I had no troubles making this bag. The pattern directions are very clear with many step by step photos along the way.

The Tudor Bag pattern is sort of like a “Choose Your Own Adventure” book because you can choose to add or leave out various details. I chose to add all the options except the magnetic closure. (I opted for a zipper closure.) The photo above shows the front zipper pocket detail. I added a little home made zipper charm.

I used Kona Cotton Solid in Sage colour for the lining and zipper closure panel.

The lining has four slip pockets and sturdy interfacing in the bag bottom.

The Tudor Bag pattern has options for handles, a shoulder strap or both.

There are two handles as well as a shoulder strap with swivel hooks on the outside of the bag. I am so happy with my beautiful bag and will carry it with pride this summer.

Another A+ pattern from Sew Sweetness!
