I think we are just about caught up on all the sewing I did while in my lap-top-less time x I have one more project to show you... be warned this is proving to be an ON-GOING project.... so you will be seeing much of the same over the next few months xx
Got you interested?
WELL... its a bag x I had been to my friends house for tea, and we were having a brew .. I was moaning that I like patchwork bags BUT, they are always floppy... even with wadding! She has a couple of bags that I have made for her and she uses them on a regular basis ..... and she was saying that she likes them MUCH better than the-bags-for-life that advertise the shop/supermarket for free, and, although they last a long time soon look grubby and nasty xx
As we began to put the world of bags to rights SHE made a suggestion that I combine the 2 to produce a bag that is sturdy and looks good x
I just laughed... but the idea took hold and EVENTUALLY it was driving me crazy enough that I did just that!
The first bag was OK.... (inside bag cost 0.29 p!! not bad ... fabric from my stash!)
... however there were "things" that could be improved ! HOWEVER I enjoyed the process...AND I kept going ....changing and (hopefully) getting better ... NOW I AM MAD ABOUT BAGS ... well mine anyway xx
I don't want to send you all to sleep ... so I will just show you one more for today..
LOVE the inside fabric ... found it while looking for something else!!
I am thinking that if I keep going for a couple of weeks I will have my Christmas presents made well in time xx mmmm MUST make sure to keep one for me xx
IN THEORY I should be making ... at the least.. a dent in my stash... cant see one yet! lol
