Oh Knickers! - The Knicker Bag Tutorial By Ros Coffey of RosMadeMe Blog

I have to tell you that the next tutorial is just too cute.    Not only is the fabric itself adorable, but the bag is made out of knickers.  It's a knicker bag.  If I've piqued your curiosity then check out the tutorial Ros Coffey has on her RosMadeMe Blog blog.   I just love it.

Oh Knickers! - The Knicker Bag Tutorial

Here's what Ros had to say about her tutorial:  Yes, you read it right, this is the knicker bag tutorial and is I think the very first bag I ever made way back in the early 70s when the craze for them hit the Convent. It was such a great bag for carrying books and files to school, although I never quite managed to get the Peak Freens biscuit tin in there for Domestic Science!

As you can imagine the design is based on an outsize pair of knickers, with the gusset becoming the handle and the waist being sewn across to create the base of the bag... now before you think I have lost the plot I can tell you that no lingerie will be harmed in the making of this bag, so let's get started.


Ros's Bio:I live by the sea, in Essex, in Leigh-on-sea. I have been making things since I was a child, earliest memories were embroidering squares of binca matting, making felt egg cups and ripping back my knitting when my sister had picked up a dropped stitch... yep, it really did have to be all my own work! I am a dreadful hoarder, with stashes of wool and fabric hidden around my house, together with the projects that I have not yet finished. I am currently making cushions, quilted, appliqued, stencilled... actually just anything that I will enjoy crafting.
