Yay !

Yay, finally finished the Cath Kidston bag.  Did not take me long at all really, two days, making a large tote bag with oilcloth, lined and with a recessed zip, mmmm talk about baptism of fire lol.  Oh well, here are some piccies xxx

ok, so I have hemmed the sides, now it gets scary lol

Yay, managed to stitch the zip component straight!

And here it is - the finished article

And I must say, I am really rather proud of myself and impressed with myself
Was not too sure I could do it, but I have, yay!

Still up ...

Well it's 12.50am and I am still up ... sooo unlike me, I know, but I am trying to get my head round straps lol, I am making this bag, I have done the body of the bag, the lining, even managed to construct a recessed zip, but the straps ... shouldn't they be easy lol  Not when you are working with oilcloth ... sticky stuff ... oh well, maybe I should go to bed and look again in the morning xxx Goodnight :o)

Ok, here we go ... again!

Welcome, I have taken on something new ... sewing, and I love it.  I love all the beautful fabrics and embelishments and creating something from nothing more than a square of fabric and some cotton!

I have made a few items so far, some coin purses and purses with keyfobs.  I am, at the moment, making a bag for my friend's daughter to give a gift.  When it's finished I will post some pics.

I made a pretty red floral coin purse for my daughter's friends birthday and a small book bag in blue with red poppies for another of her friends birthdays.  I also have some orders for some more bags!

I am aiming at making baby nappy changing bags and accessories which I will, hopefully, be able to sell.

Here are some pics I have at the moment, some of them are not great as the camera gave up, so were using the webcam, but have since discovered that the phone takes pretty good pics!

Wow, think we are up to date for now!

See you again soon
