I had this one made well in advance of this weeks link-up. I knew it would be a very busy time with Jakes 1st birthday coming up and my sewing girls weekend away. (I cant post about this yet, there's still more girls to go on one in October and its a secret). Had a fantastic time, worked really hard and I promise to show you what we made later.
Back to the Sew-A-Long, for my fourth project, I decided on the Sewing Bag with drawstring.
My girlfriend in Queensland bought some material for me at a really good price (who can resist a bargain) and sent it down to me so I thought, perfect for my little bag.
It is a combination of oranges, yellows and browns. Certainly a little bit different. Surprisingly the redwork panel actually went quite well with the colours so that was a success.
I was a little disappointed with the placement of the stitching panel. I should have measured more accurately because the bag actually sits on the stitching a little bit.
Love the drawstring topper, it gives heaps more room in the bag for whatever you choose. I think I will use it to take my latest sewing project around with me.
