Whilst I was studying dressmaking level 3 (autumn 2009 – summer 2010) I designed and made this Scotty dog bag from the gorgeous red tartan fabric and the black cotton I had over from the skirt I was sewing on the course. I also covered a military cap with some of the tartan fabric.
The bag has an internal snap fastening and a mid-length handle which loops round the entire bag, so becoming the base and sides. The front and back panels are circular.
The Scotty dog emblem, so popular when it entered, barking and yapping onto the 1950s’ fashion scene, is a favourite of mine.
