Blog Party Lollibag







Okay so I made this flower Lollibag with the blog party in mind.
Some of you have seen it a couple days ago, but here it is again.
And I've never told you how I make the flowers so I'll do that too!




To make the flower, first I draw scallops on my fabric.
Then I cut the strips of fabric that have the scallops on them.
Then I cut each scallop (petals) but still keep it a strip.




Then I sew a gathering stitch on each strip.
I usually have 9 or more strips of fabric.



I pull up the gathers a little on each strip.
Then I take the front canvas panel for the outer bag and I arrange the petal strips.
I pin one on and then sew it and so on and so on.





Then I sew on a vintage button in the center of the flower.
And I finish up the Lollibag, which is to make the interior lining,
then finish putting together the outer bag.
Then I put the lining in and pin the strap in place and sew it all together!




And that is how I make a flower Lollibag!
Reading that seems confusing, but I have it down to a science :)
Thanks for stopping by!
