Chandelier Swing Bag

Monthly bag from Big City Bags time!!
This month's bag in the Chandelier Swing Bag and I am happy to report that it turned out much better than last month's disappointing Lucky Denver Mint. This bag's only real drawback is that it's so tiny! I'm not usually a small bag girl. I have to carry a wallet, keys, phone...and of course juice boxes, snacks, antibacterial wipes, hotwheels, etc...so I like a big bag!

But I couldn't resist giving this bag a chance. It's actually really cute. I didn't think I'd like that tiny strap, but it's my favorite part. Makes me feel young and carefree again. It's just the right size for money, phone, and keys. I may never need a bag like this and will probably be gifting it a young niece soon, but it sewed together well and I love how the fabrics I chose came together. An overall success! I'm going to try to make another one, since I have 2 young nieces and the monthly prize at the Sewing with Squeak SAL is some Japanese fabric, which I LUVS!!! It's never to late too join in if you're interested in making some fun bags. Next month's bag scares me already....uses lots of bias binding.....my arch enemy returns! I will not be deterred though!

I've also been making some fun stuff for some swaps, but can't show those off yet. Until then, here's the Chandelier Swing in pics...

Inside view, used Domino Dots!!! I love this print. 

Zipper panel, had to add a zipper pull, it's a tight squeeze in there. 

Little better front view of the tiniest pleats I've ever seen. 


I'll be linking up to the Big City Bags SAL at Sewing with Squeak!

  1. You did a great job with this bag, Betsy! I love the bright colors and the design. It does look like it would be a good bag for a tween or teen. I might have to give it a try. Have a great weekend! :)
