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.
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.
