The Myla Bag

I’ve got more bag making to show you today!

I was sent the Myla bag kit from One Stitch is Never Enough a few weeks ago just after my first foray into using cork fabric (check it out here). I loved that someone was championing the use of this unique material. I was super curious as to how they would use this fabric that I jumped at the chance to try it out!

One Stitch is Never Enough is a brand new company specialising in cork fabric bag making kits. They’ve only got one pattern available – the Myla – which is a simple lined envelope clutch sized bag with a long cross body strap. It comes with all the pieces and notions included as well as detailed instructions.

There were lots of options for the colour of the cork but I chose to stick with a natural colour with a gold fleck.

This is a super easy kit to make. It took me maybe 30 minutes if that, to assemble it all! The fabric pieces are already cut to size so the only cutting needed is for the little cork loops for the D rings.

It’s a simple bag shape with the typical method of construction. You see in the zip first then sew the outer and lining pieces right sided together before turning out through the lining. It’s a method I’ve used before which made this make even speedier!

I opted for the bird cotton fabric lining and a black leather strap for my kit.

All in all it’s a lovely simple bag making kit. I liked that all the bits were included (barring a sewing machine and thread) and I think it would make a great gift for someone looking to get into sewing or bag making!
