Today I finished my first Polaris Bag for the Bag of the Month Club. This is the March bag and I’m pleased to have finished it in March (even though I had to skip the February bag to do so) and also because it’s my birthday today so I got a new bag to celebrate!
So as you might know by now, the new bag pattern is released on the 1st of the month, so for the last two weeks I’ve been considering what I wanted to do with this pattern. There have been some wonderful examples of this bag posted in the Facebook group page, and I was also very tempted by some glitter vinyl. I did order the glitter vinyl but it hasn’t arrived yet so then at the weekend while I was mulling over what fabrics to use, it hit me that I should make a kitty bag because the oval shape reminded me of a kitty face!
So I give you the furry faced kitty Polaris bag
This post is still a WIP because it’s late and I need to go to bed, and I will tell you later how much fun it was to sew with the faux leather, faux fur and foam (not) but for now check out the rest of the photos below.
The ears have fur on one side and faux leather on the other side, with faux leather trim and strap.
There is a leopard print cotton lining and pocket inside. And of course, as per my previous post, you can join the bag of the month club here
