A Sunday on the sewing machine

There is something scary about the fact that I moved here without my fabric stash and yet I’ve managed to build up a big enough one to think that I want to make a handbag in bed one morning and have it done without leaving the house.

I made this on Sunday out of the fabric leftover from the ruffles on the reconstructed skirt, the black fabric in the flower is from the trousers cut up to make it as well. That trim I bought on the card at Totnes and the button is from deep in the stash.

The bag fits the book(s) that I carry about with me and the length of the straps means that it dangles above my bum without me having to worry.

Ooooh Clare, you are looking so good! (Must be love:)). I'm getting back into the real world -- ie, the internet -- after a flat-out few months. I'll try to stay in touch this time, honest ...
