I've been busy with bags all day, well, since I finished my homework that is! Yes I'm a swot and it''s all done. I'll read it through tomorrow, just to make sure it's all in English and I didn't become fluent in Swahili half way through.
So since late this morning I've made 5 bags, with varying degrees of success. These first two are not for Elaine, but one of them is a gift, the other will be mine.I have to say I'm not at all impressed with my efforts on this creamy one, but there is still some of this fabric left and I intend to have another go tomorrow. (I'm sick of the thought of bags at the moment.)
This little tartan book bag suits the cross stitch patch, well I think it does anyway.
And a sweet little grand daughter sized bag. The button serves no other purpose than to weight the flap and help it to stay closed.
If all else fails, I'll make a larger version of this tomorrow for Granny Elaine.
My scraps box is overflowing and I feel that it's time I did something about that. I have a huge piece of black fabric which would serve well as sashing fabric, if only I could find the right scrappy pattern. I'm off to find inspiration, then maybe I'll dig DD Kay out of her room to come and help.
1) Lots of time to play.
2) Another hot sunny day.
3) My homework is finished.
