This next project was a bit of an experiment. A good friend of mine asked if I could make a Bag for her daughters Highland Dance practice swords. This was a first, I think I can safely say that I have never made a sword bag before.
As usual Tigger always comes to help. He was my cheerleader for this project.
He even came over to hold my hand while I was sewing!
The instructions were pretty simple. The bag had to hold the swords and close that was it ☺ Alright I think I can handle that. I went through my stash and found some fabric I thought would work well and still look relatively cute. The last thing I wanted was this bag to look like a mish-mash of left over fabric.
I ended up placing two grommets on underside of the tartan and used a "Robert Kaufman" ribbon which I found in my Moms craft drawer for the drawstring closure. While digging though my Moms craft drawer I came across all these great beads. I threaded a Groovy peace sign bead onto the drawstring to add a little flare.
Then lastly with my Moms advice the carrying strap was attached. The strap was a little long at first but with quick thinking that extra length was turned into a handy hook to hang the sword bag by.
To make sure the bag and its strap worked I give it a little test drive☺
Until next time
