Sewing Saturday

...except it's on a Sunday this time for no reason other than I got sidetracked by making some small changes to the blog yesterday. Quite a way into the early hours. I refused to be defeated!

So, this week — actually, last Sunday — I made a shoulder bag with lining and inside pocket for my sister. She's been is a little unwell so hopefully it cheered her up. : )


I've almost finished the apron that we started in class on Thursday using the same fabric that I used for my shoulder bag. I've set my sights on making this zipper card pouch for a friend although finding some of the supplies has proved difficult so I've made no headway.

It seems I cannot resist buying fabrics even when I don't have a project planned/in mind and picked up this pretty flower fabric. Oh and I've now taken to buying dress patterns despite a) enrolment for the dressmaking course not being available never mind having started and b) me not having a single clue how to decipher a dressmaking pattern!

Meh, I'll worry about that later! :D

  1. Oh my goodness I love this bag. And the previous one you made. I know nothing about sewing (the only sewing I do is sewing badges on to my camp blanket!) but these look very professional indeed. Good work! I am sure it did cheer your sister up.

    1. Thanks Amy! I knew very little about sewing myself up until a few weeks ago. But I know must people could get to grips with it just as quickly. Just like the photos of my other bag, the little mistakes are very well hidden. ; )

    1. I know, it's a beaut. I got it from Bristol's Fabricland on Bond Street and they have it in other colours too, a pink and a lilac I think.
