Brookfield Bag with Boxed Corners

I wanted to play around with a few bags that I have made before and make even more changes, so I decided to try boxing the corners of the Brookfield Bag (by Sew Sweetness). I really like how this one came out. It gives the bag a bit more room inside. I added an accent strip on the bottom instead of the 4 corner patches. I really like the sweet look of the four patches, but I thought it would be nicer to provide more space. It's still a small-medium sized bag measuring 8 1/2" wide x 8 1/2" high x 3" deep. (Which could be small to some and medium sized to others depending on your point of view).

Since I chose to make another hot air balloon fabric bag, I didn't want to add any exterior pockets on the back to interfere with the design. The next Brookfield with boxed corners I make will have a back exterior pocket; either a zippered pocket, a slip pocket or a welt pocket. See I still need to play around and see what I think looks best, so I may need to make 3 more Brookfield Bags and try a different pocket on each bag.

Brookfield Bag made with boxed corners.

Instead of adding the 4 corner patches, I boxed the corners and added an accent strip where the 4 corner patches would have gone.  By boxing the corners, the bag is a bit roomier inside.

The bag is slightly deeper with the boxed corners.

A slip pocket with a pen pocket inside.

Seems a bit roomier with the corners of the bag being boxed.
This one will be going to the local shows(s) in November to see if anyone loves it enough to want to purchase it and take it home with them. 

I am making some changes to another bag design that I making right now to see how it turns out. I will be posting that one later this month.

  2. I personally really like boxed corners on my bags. I wish you well at your shows, you are getting a nice stock built up.

  3. Love the colors in this one, as well as the boxed bottom.
