Inner Circle

 I got the pattern for the Inner Circle Bag from the Bag of the Month Club on March 1, 2020. I decided it was very doable and dove in, starting on March 4. Then things went sideways. 

Inner circle got tucked away, and I started making masks, and hand sanitizer pouches. So, last week, while tidying my sewing room, it popped up again and I decided it was time to finish it.

It did take awhile to figure out where I left off, and what needed to be done. I had the zipper attached to its facing, and it looked a bit wonky. I'm pretty sure that nobody else will think it is wonky, so, I will move forward. 

I realized that it needed its stabilizers, so they were cut and attached. I had second thoughts on the pocket, so I redesigned how it was going to work. Now it has a lining pocket.

Even I think the lining is pretty wild. So I went a little more subtle on the pocket lining.

This is the outside of the bag. The lining is actually a near perfect match. The fabric was embroidered denim from a long time ago, that was lounging in my stash.

It will be a lovely spring bag for somebody. 

Yesterday, I got the Income Tax Returns finished, so now I am free to play with this. It should go together quickly from here.


  1. That embroidered denim is the perfect fabric for a bag! I don't think the lining is too wild, it picks up the colours of the flowers very well......and I love the peeking kitties.

  2. Play to your heart's content, those fabrics are wonderful. Easter Greetings to you up North.

  3. Beautiful bag, very spring flowers design.

  4. Definitely a cute spring bag! And the 'subtle' kitty-cat lining is delightful!

  5. It's going to be lovely. Did you embroider the denim? Machine embroidery? I really like it.

  6. I love the embroidered denim, great for a bag. xx
