So here’s the thing, I bought a blush cushion cover in Ikea a good 4 months ago, simply because it was the most perfect shade of blush anyone could wish for (not too pink, not too dark) and it was a bargain £3! I wasn’t sure I needed another cushion in my life but I vowed to put it to use in some yet to be decided way.
Hello! Right about now I’ll be boarding a plane to get my melt on in Egypt, land of the Pharaohs but I thought I’d bid you bye bye with this DIY Summer bag tutorial. It’s tucked away in the suitcase as we speak.
My last venture into batik was way back in secondary school art, when I created a somewhat ugly and over colourful ‘under the sea’ cushion cover. I wish I still had it so I could give you some contrast. Anyway, I thought I’d try and create a simple and versatile pattern that would translate into and everyday bag for all you eager crafters out there to get making. It does involve sewing but a tote style bag is about the easiest thing you could possible see so stick with me.
