I recently had the pleasure of being a pattern tester for the Denim Boro Bag pattern by Judith Hollies (Just Jude Designs). I'd sent some photographs to Judith at the end of June, but had to wait before I could share any pictures on social media. The most difficult part of making the bag was keeping it a secret until the pattern was released! I used a selection of old denim garments, and teamed it with some gorgeous Tilda fabric for the lining...
...the instructions were really easy to follow, and included lots of pictures and helpful tips. I decided to repurpose a leather strap and hardwear from an old bag rather than make a denim one, and I'm really pleased with how my bag turned out. Anyway here's my completed bag and I absolutely LOVE it. If you'd like to make one, the pattern is available to purchase as a PDF download from Judith's website Just Jude Designs. I'll be using my bag on Sunday at Festival of Quilts, so if you see me please stop and say hello!
