Another Sewing Project

My sewing machine has seen quite a lot of use lately.  I had a request for bike stem bags, which I had no idea how to make.  A pattern was found online and the required fabric and notions were purchased some weeks prior to lockdown.

They were challenging to make, as the directions were written by someone who clearly wasn’t a sewer, but I eventually managed to work out how to assemble them.  My machine didn’t like the nylon thread I had to use - it is required because it doesn’t rot if exposed to moisture - but I managed to get it all sewn together.

It has been hinted that additional bike bags would be useful, but I’m not in a hurry to make any more at the moment.


  1. You have great skill and patience to make the bag, it looks very complicated. No wonder you don't want to think about another one yet. Hope you are staying safe and well:)

  2. Thank you, Rosie. It was certainly challenging. Marie x
