I bet your thinking not another post! I go a month with no posts and now lots! As the sewing bug has hit Pixie towers, I thought it was about time I made the bag that accompanies Cath Kidston's Sew! I've had the book since before Christmas and I keep looking at the bag kit included thinking I must make that; and then putting it off until another day.
But today I got around to making it. I've only ever made one bag before so this was a bit of a change for me.
Me being me though, I decided to make some changes to make it more usable. I had some lovely red with white spot globaltex fabric in my stash which I used to line it, and make it more substantial.
I also decided to stitch on the straps to make it stronger and just use the side buttons as a detail.
I'm so pleased with how it turned out, its so small and cute, but I can still get all the essentials in it and still have room for more.
Now time to show you what goodies the postie bought today. I have been a little naughty and ordered a few bits from Panduro hobby. First some lime fabric and some seaside buttons. oooppps forgot to rotate the pic.
And some papercraft items which are just too pretty for words. Can't wait to use these. I think they'll be making an appearance in future swaps.
I had a great idea for another swap today, but I won't host it just yet as I know there have been a lot running at the moment and I'm sure you could all do with a break from swaps for a while.
Just a short post today, off to cook hubby's tea now.
