Pretty Pleats Bag – Simplicity 2685

IMG-20150528-01832I love Cath Kidston’s pretty bags and I must admit that I am a fan of her incredible brand. It is no surprise that bags are her best seller and though I own such a bag with a bird print, I have made a CK inspired polka dot bag.

IMG-20150528-01831This lovely design is from a Simplicity sewing pattern. There are 4 designs with pleats and I made version B. I used a thick and heavyweight cotton which is suitable for making a bag. I really like the three pleats at the front and back. There is a double folded pocket in the cotton lining and there are three snaps to close the bag at the top. I decorated the bag with some tiny crochet flowers on the handles.


This bag is deep and there is a lot of room to carry your things in it.

What do you think about Cath Kidston bags? Do you own one?

    Very nice bag, especially the polka dot fabric for summer! I don’t really see much of Cath Kidston here though I know of her via UK magazines.
