Finally some sunshine

yesterday so that I could snap a couple of pictures of a cute and quick bag I just finished.

This is the 'Dapper Day Bag' from Meg McElwee's book, Sew Liberated.
I used some thrifted denim and vintage heavy weight cotton to make my version. I love the simplicity of this design and the added kick that the pleats and piping give it.

As in the original, I used a magnetic snap for the closure and then for my own extra "touch" I made a self cover button to match the piping and top stitched the bag handle with a twin needle. Simple and fun.


  1. Gorgeous bag, Katherine! Love the piping and the button! The icing on the cake!

  2. Beautiful! The piping is perfect

  3. great bag Katherine........and I love using magnetic clips.......

  4. Love your spotty piping and the yellow material is divine. A real show stopper!!!

  5. A lovely bag and the piping looks so perfect! Your work is beautiful!

  6. oh how pretty............ you have the most beautiful ideas!

    And yes, today I sat with my mom and sister for a few minutes in the sunlight on my mom's deck... it was wonderful to feel its warmth!

  7. Oooo, pretty - you know how much I love bags, your new one is gorgeous!
