I'll show you more of the project I chose in another blog post, but for now, here is a little taster - the pretty threads I'm working with -
So of course I needed somewhere to store my book while I was working with it, my aida, hoop, threads etc, right? I thought I'd make a fairly large zippy pouch. I had some lovely thick Cath Kidston in mind...teamed it up with pretty pink/white polka dots and designed/sewed both at the same time.
|Pretty fabrics and a zip....|
|A handy little inside pocket...|
I added a double outside pocket too, pockets are good, I hate having to rummage around in the bottom of a bag to find stuff!
I also boxed the bottom corners of my bag to increase storage space. And....here is the finished bag -
I made it pretty big so that it would hold the book or magazine I was working from, my travel sewing roll, my little zippy pouch that holds my threads and scissors, and my fabric and hoop.
You get a better idea of the size here -
After all that sewing (and brain-work!) I was ready to relax for a bit with a cuppa and some home-made carrot cake, yum!
PS. If you're a regular reader of my blog you'll be aware that my other half has recently spent a little time in America....of course I didn't miss my chance to order some (OK, a *lot*) of fabric from some lovely US fabric stores. I'll show you in my next post the massive pile of fabricy goodness he came home with!!
