... project really has my interest because I think about it ALL THE TIME!!!! ... that is what I am like at the moment with the bag swap x ... even though I don't know HOW I came to be doing it .. as I am DEFINATLY cutting back on my swaps this year!! lol x ..it is at the front of my brain all the time .
I have decided to go with this ..
...pattern as it offers MOST of the requests from my partner (this is a blind swap so she does NOT know who is making her bag xx .. nor me for that matter!)... but needs TWEEKING a little x ... I think patterns are like recipes .. take the bits you like .. swap it around and make it your own xx
I find that when I am walking the boys ..
I can work out the details of whatever I am chewing on ... be it a pattern .. or just life!! xx
I made a bag .. more or less .. like the pattern..
..it is sort of OK .. but needs a few refinements .. going to my mate Sue for her new grandson x
SO THEN I made another one ...(bit bigger this time )..
....this is closer to what I want .. still not completely RIGHT x This is going to my daughter (Sally) to use when she goes swimming as it is roomy x .. and has used up A LOT of my owl scraps .... and YES she does like owls!! lol x
SO off to walk the dogs somemore ... they love it xx...and work out those final "quirks" xx
Hope you have a good way to work out your problems xx
