Do you remember my Robot n Felt book bags from last year? They were incredibly popular for lots of reasons ... the robots, the orange, the felt ... and I hope - the style.
This time I've made a very similar bag in denim. The fabric overlay is linen and cotton printed with bicycles. The bikes have that old time look to them, like choppers with the high handlebars.
My favorite part of this bag is the large gusset on the bottom and the red stitching. I used heavy duty thread for jeans. It's much thicker than normal thread and really stands out on the denim. I love it.
The fabric is so cute, red and blue bikes and little fluffy clouds.
I pre-washed the denim twice to set the dye. It came out of the machine like stiff cardboard but it irons and sews beautifully.
