a new lingerie bag, for man!

I sewed something a little unexpected:
a pouch to carry men's underwear!


To make it as masculine as possible, I used some suit fabric in grey with a subtle blue plaid,
but I added a flowery pair of boxers (in Liberty of London!)

Over the years, I have made many lingerie bags, for ladies: 

1-linen and lavender bag, 2- laundry bag,
3- mes dessous bag. 4-green bag,
5-  linen/mushroom bag, and 6- linen/hedgehog bag.


So this one is definitively different, a lot simpler.
I also did not line it to keep it from taking too much space.
I used French seams so there are no raw edges inside,
it is actually quite neat, and very light.

(with a little lavender bag)

Once again I used the same technique from Sotak Handmade
to complete the bag,
I love making the drawstring part this way....
which you have seen previously on 
 my beach bag and the the dala horse bag:




I like it so much that I might make one for myself,
(with a different applique, of course!)
even if the wool was harder to sew than cotton.


Happy sewing!

  1. This bag is amazing! But the title is a bit disturbing, Lingerie Bag for Men? Correct me if I am wrong, isn't the word "lingerie" associated to women?

    1. yes it is, but I am quite known for my lingerie bags, as I have more than a dozen, so I felt it was more fun that way! As far as I know the recipient of this bag seems happy with it, a huge improvement over the previous plastic bag he was using!

Coffee, bunny and Easter eggs

Can anyone have too many bunnies, really? OK, maybe, but I am not there yet! I changed my cocoa station from last winter to a spring coffee ...
