The Sugar and Spice Bag that I made for the Chris W Designs Facebook Sew Along sold immediately so I decided that I needed to make even more of these. By the way, it is one of my most favorite bags, too, as well as one of my most favorite bag patterns to make. And did I say very popular with my customers? That is a bag trifecta!
After making the Bella bag in red faux leather, I decided to continue the theme of that same color shade and chose a geometric print I had in my stash. I had recently bought a remnant of a solid that matched well coincidentally. (I love when that happens.) So, I used the solid for the handles as well as the piping that I only used on the pockets.
The color of the bag is a little off in these pictures. It is more of a maroon than a red. The third picture shows the true color.
I love how the lining peeks out on this bag. It makes you put as much thought into the lining fabric as the outside fabric.
There are four slip pockets on the outside of this bag and another four slip pockets on the inside.
Bag top recessed zipper
The bag closes on top with a recessed zipper. That keeps everything secure and in your bag where it belongs. All in all...I just love everything about a Sugar and Spice Bag. If you haven't tried one of Chris W Designs patterns, you are really missing out. The bags turn out so professional looking and the patterns are chock full of directions and pictures that make them easy to follow. You can get this pattern here.
