Noodlehead Bag


Noodlehead Bag
This is a bag I made for my friend Sheryl back in January. She and I had been looking for a pattern that was just right (not too big, not too small, pretty easy to construct) for quite a while. We both saw a picture of this bag come across our email on the same morning and knew this was it.

Sheryl picked out beautiful fabric and the Noodlehead Runaround pattern was very easy to follow.

Not only was it the first bag I completed on my own, but also my first zipper and magnetic closure. All super easy!

The only thing I'd do differently next time, is to just generously pin the bottom to the body of the purse to sew it on. I used a long basting stitch that I pulled to gather and I just couldn't get the fabric to stay nice and even all around. I may be too much of a perfectionist but I really wanted to have a little more control over where all the gathers were stitched. I have another bag for myself cut out, so we'll see how smooth it goes. Overall, I really thought this was a great pattern. I'd like to try one of her zipper clutches soon.

It really is a cute bag. I've never made a bag... I will bookmark this to put on my "someday" list
