Guess who? I know, daft question.
Well hopefully you’ve all eaten your Easter eggs and are now felling full and lazy. Well, I was feeling a tad lazy this weekend, the two of us don’t get that much time off together because of |Simon’s shifts so i didn’t think I could shut myself away sewing for the whole weekend. And we had to do the obligatory family thing on Sunday so that was a day when nothing could be done.
Anyway, I have some photos in hand to post of my latest makes and on Saturday I did make Simon a laptop bag. He was given a choice of fabrics and I have to say he chose well. Mind you, if he hadn’t I would have just made it in a better choice and not said anything. Whoops.
the finished laptop bag. Black needlecord.
With the actual library book the idea came from. Didn’t follow the instructions though. What a rebel. Worked it out myself and measured the laptop to make sure it would be the right size. Nice book though. It has a pattern for a camera bag which I might have to make myself.
Here is also the bag that I made the other week that I have decided to keep for my very very own.
I lined it in a really nice dress fabric, gave it a magnetic clasp and a self covered button on the flap as it needed just a bit of something.
I dithered over buying the remnant of upholstery fabric when we were in Cambridge the other week and am so glad I did buy it. It was a bit expensive but it’s gorgeous.
I have all of the pieces cut out for a bucket bag in the same fabric but never got around to stitching it up at the weekend so maybe Thursday. I did start knitting instead and am making a jacket to go with the bootees I knitted before.
Look out for that next time.
I have also been playing aroung with these Online image generators for our 23 things and have come up with some good bits that I can print off onto card and give with my handmade bits and bobs. ( I have posh sew in labels already for my knitting!)
I made them at spiffytext.com
Also for my library chums, heres one for you…………….
