Meet The Multi Bag – Giveaway!

Hello Friends!

I’m back home after a wonderful time at this years Handmade Fair – I get to meet so many awesome folks, spend some time with a few of my very favourite humans, soak up heaps of inspirations and have an all time blast!

One of the things that y’all were super interested in on the Vilene stand this year was the all new Multi Bag kit, so, let’s talk about the Multi Bag!
Meet The Multi Bag - Giveaway! Made Peachy Many of you stitchers will have spotted ironing bags in your travels across the internet – these handy bags have a clever origami style construction that allows you to stash your travel iron, then can be quickly and easily unfolded to create a travel pressing pad or mini ironing board – suer neat, am I right?
Meet The Multi Bag - Giveaway! Made Peachy For many of us the process of making one of these clever designs is a little baffling – but trust me it is a lot easier than you might thing. Even more so with the help of this fancy new kit from Vilene – which contains the full instructions and pre-cut pieces of Decovil 1 and Thermolam.
Meet The Multi Bag - Giveaway! Made Peachy I know what your thinking! What are these fancy interlining that you speak of. Well, Decovil 1  is a fusible interfacing that is secured to the wrong side of your fabric with a heat activated adhesive, so you can easily apply it with your iron. It has a wonderful suede-like feeling and once bonded to your fabric will give it just the right amount of structure to hold the shape of the Multi Bag. Thermolam is a heat-insulated batting making it ideal for using inside ironing pads and pot holders! So the combination of these to ace products make this the perfect companion for your travel iron for holidays and workshops!

Meet The Multi Bag - Giveaway! Made Peachy The Multi Bag is surprisingly easy to put together using the ready-to-make kit all you need to supply is fabrics (this around two fat quarters of cotton for the main section of the bag – if you don’t have any selvedge in the fabric cuts!), some ribbon and trimmings and a length of binding tape. The pack comes with step-by-step illustrated images to help you along the way and requires only basic machine sewing skills – straight line stitching, top stitching and applying binding!

There is even a handy video you can watch to help you master this make at home -if you already have Decovil & Thermolam in your stash and are itching to get started, then why not download the instructions and get making right away?!

The Multi Bag can be used for so many different things – why not add a layer of Lamifix to the surface of the cottons before constructing to make a wipeable baby change mat? This bag can be used for toting your knitting or crochet projects and can be opened out to give you a neat and clean surface to work on with on the go projects. Take your pack-up lunch to work to make those unavoidable eating-at-your-desk a little more luxurious? Use it to pack up travel toys for the Littles for car or train journeys. Stow your straightening irons or curling wands to save scorching the surface of your vanity as they cool down. Serious you guys- the possibilities are endless!

    I would use oil cloth for the interior, pack it with a sneaky pic nic including a lovely bottle of pimms and the once unpacked use the bag oil cloth side down as a handy “blanket” to sit on and enjoy the day!

    Hi, We met at the handmade fair. I’d love to win a kit and would use it instead of trudging out the ironing board when I sew! I’d like to make a mini version for hair straighteners for when we travel too 😉
    Thanks for the chance. Love your blog xxx

    I’d use it to safely move my rabbits from the table into their carry boxes for the vet, they’d be super safe in there and cushioned in their box.

      Lauren what a fab idea! I would love to see a photo of a cute rabbit in one of these bags, and it would make the whole vet experience much better for the little bunnies! Good Luck!

    What a fantastic idea! I’ve not seen a bag like this before – I’d definitely use it for toting about my iron – not original but very useful! x
