Noodlehead Bucket Bag

My first completed make of the Finish-a-Long is the Noodlehead Bucket Bag.  The pattern is from Handmade Style by Anna Graham, and I’m absolutely delighted with it!  It’s a surprising roomy bag and will be perfect for holiday beach trips.

There are masses of great details, including zip pockets and eyelets (noisy – sorry for the hammering, neighbours), and the chance to use three different fabrics.

I went for some gorgeous Cloud 9 Meridian barkcloth, Birch Organic Bear Flight canvas (currently on sale) and some navy polka dots for the lining.

The instructions are very good.  I did have one oopsie* when I cut both pockets into the same side, but that was because I didn’t look at the diagrams properly.  It was easily put right by cutting the piece in half and swapping them around.dottie-doodle-noodlehead-bucket-bag

Hetty won’t be coming on holiday with us but it will be useful for day trips with her.  Plenty of room for treats and other puppy essentials.

*Oopsie is Small Niece’s word for a mistake or accident – I’ve adopted it.
