The End of the Summer...

So its getting rainier and colder; the summer has come to an end, and what a good one it has been :). Full of sewingy adventures :D. Okay so the local sewing shop had a huge sale on all the leftover summer fabric so I got what I could, and this is the result. I love how the cream bag turned out, especially the handle, it was my first goat using the plastic tubing from U-handbag, an amazing blog and shop (so go check it out :P) It's comfy to hold, flexible but yet still firm enough to support the bag and contents. The bag has a zippy pocket inside and a wide gusset. The second bag is more of an oversized pouch/clutch with a little matching make up bag to go with it. I was tentative about using the two fabrics together, not being able to make my mind up if they go or not, but now I think it was the right decision :D. Let me know what you think :)

Baggy Goodness

So sorry that I havn't blogged in a good 2 months (shocking isn't it?!) but it's been the summer holidays and I've been away for most of them :). I have been busy making bags though, a lot of them which I will show you over the coming weeks :P Right now I am excitedly awaiting a package from The Cotton Patch containing metres of fabric delights :D They will turn into bag goodyness, however I did ordere two mini charm packs (first ever!! :D) in an attempt to kick start my quilting experiences again :P I thought the chances of it going wrong and slighlty smaller if I can be sure the fabric has atleast been cut properly :P We will see how it goes...(maybe you will even catch a glimpse ;)) On another note, there will soon ( I promise!!) be a tutorial up! Wahey!! (btw that is IKEA fabric and I love it! <3)
