I made a bag.

I have finally finished the bag I have been making on Tuesday night craft with the ladies next door. It has taken me a long time, Im pretty sure we started it last year. It is to be a bag for carrying my sewing things when I take them out. I am almost tempted to use it as a handbag because I love it so much but I know how I treat my handbags so I wont.

It was mostly hand sewn so that took awhile and not a lot of sewing gets down with all the chatting and eating of cakes and other treats...... especially homemade nougat (can you say yum)

Some of the fabrics and the felt leaves are the same as the ones I used in this sewing case. So it all matches. It is nice having things that match.

My next Tuesday night craft project is going to be an appliquéd pillow so I can learn needle turn appliqué. It is going to be in yellows. I hopefully I will get to start that soon. We have missed three weeks in a row with people being sick.

It has been so cold in the mountains that I am tempted to make my self a pair of quilted pants. They would be so warm but everyone it telling me they would be too ugly. I'm not convinced. In my head they look good.

    1. Thanks. I'm so happy with the way it turned out.

  2. What a gorgeous bag. If you did use it as a handbag it would give you an excuse to make another one. Quilted pants sound like a good idea to me. Winter is definitely creeping in.

    1. Thanks for your kind comment.
      If I ever make quilted pants I will let you know how they go.
