Arabesque Bag in Browns

I sold this Arabesque Bag (Sew Sweetness pattern) at a craft show in November last year. This was the first one I ever made in brown batik fabrics and I love how it came out. I will be making some more bags in browns when I get the chance. This is the original size of this bag (I have made others at 80% and 90% too).

Zipper pull I made for the zippered closure of this bag.

Side to show the depth of the bag.

On the back I am now adding a zippered pocket to all the Arabesque Bags that I make. 

Another zipper pull I made for the back pocket.

Inside the bag is a slip pocket and I sewed a pen pocket on the left, which you can't see, but it's there.
I love making these bags in patchwork strips and will continue to make them in all 3 sizes and in various colors too. I get to make bags and make a little patchwork quilt at the same time, satisfying both the quilter and bag maker in me at the same time. I will make more to sell at the craft shows as well as sell in my Etsy Shop too.

  1. Oh, look at me! I have my commenting problem solved! Thanks to Deb Riddle...and I’m shouting it from the rooftops! LOL. Daryl, your bags always look professionally made. This one looks like a great tote bag for travel. But of course, for anytime. I carry such a little purse, that all large bags are tote bags to me. :-)
