I finally have some sewing other than my cross stitch, that I am able to share!
I made a cute little bag for my penpal! I've had the outside of this floating around for a couple of years, It started out as something else entirely, but that didn't work, I've played around with a few ideas, but nothing seemed quite right until today. Last night I had the idea that I would turn it into a bag.
So this afternoon I've put the idea in motion, nothing too flash just a basic quick lining with a pocket and some handles, then I've closed the two together quilt style with a binding strip. I just need to hand sew the binding closed, then fill it with goodies and mail it to my pal.
My clicky finger got busy the other day and I spent some money. Tut tut!
One item I'm assured will be delivered on Wednesday!! Hmmm, maybe I should have asked what time. LOL The other items are coming across the wet stuff from the USA so they will get here when they do.
The island is counting down the days until the next motorcycle invasion Manx Grand Prix week is imminent, which means that Janice will be here very soon too! One week today.
Right, I have to go do stuff.

It's amazing how UFOs can sometimes just come into their own! The bag looks very sophisticated.

Woo Hoo! The days are passing so quickly now. So much to do before we leave. I can't wait till we are there NEXT WEEK!!!

By the way, I love the way your bag turned out. A good job to finish.

I love the bag . . . gorgeous! I just read that you live on the Isle of Man. My Great-great Grandfather Jacob Dowding was born there and came to the U.S. during The Great Potato Famine. Would love to hear from you. I have never been there but would love visit & see what his life was like there. Beautiful land. :)
