A bag for all seasons

The design for this needlepoint bag was inspired by the pattern of a vintage apron I was given by an elderly friend called Doris. SH’d had this apron since she was a girl. The geometric design is typical of the 10940’s as are the strong colours. Doris is a good size for shopping or keeping your craft projects ready to go!

WebDorisI made the bead handles myself and later did a version using leather handles which are readily available online.

This is a wonderfully practical bag and can be personalised with your choice of lining, pockets, fastenings and handles.

This version of the Doris bag, with its bright strong colours is perfect for summer whites.

The bag is stitched in 5 parts. The front and back panels, two sides and the bottom panel. You can either cut the sections and work them separately or work them all together. Whichever you choose I am sure you will enjoy stitching this fun design and using it for years to come.

Happy stitching!
