I finished my Nora Doctor Bag from Swoon Patterns last week. I made it from 100% Joann’s fabrics. They don’t have the biggest Halloween selection, but it’s fairly nice! There is more costuming stuff than prints, I guess is what I mean.
I made the smallest size, using the templates from Tops & Bobbins. I have all three sizes. If you don’t have their templates, I’ll wait right here while you go order some. They are lifesavers and completely amazing.
I had hesitated to make this bag because I was worried about the bulk in the seems, but since I’m on my new Industrial thought it was about time.
I used a lot of rivets to sort of add to the Steampunk feel I was going with. I really think it turned out well.
I also made a matching plague doctor key fob, a NCW, and a little zippered pouch.
I plan on using this set in October. It’s a nice little size, easy to carry, but seems to fit plenty inside, including a full sized NCW. I usually wear a cross body (usually a Hollyhock), but I feel like I could give this style a personal try!
