I have finished my sewing today in order to get some housework done before picking up The Princess and Little Man from school, so here is the bag I have chosen to gift to a lovely reader. I call it the "Amber" bag, in honour of MamaMoontime.
You'll have to excuse my dreadful lighting, it's been storming here for the past couple of days so there's no sunlight, only my ceiling lights, to show off this pretty little bag.
The bird is the Wendy bird pattern from Lolly Chops. I love her stuff, it's so cute.
I will be upfront and confess that I am not a perfect sewer, my seams and cutting has never been straight and measuring rarely enters my mind before I start cutting. But, this bag is made with care and grace. And I think it looks cute to boot! Perfect for those impromptu shopping trips or just because you want to take it out.
I've done some shocking sewing projects over the years that I've been sewing (since I was a child actually), including my pouffy-sleeved 80's formal dress that looked lovely at the time but heaven's above - what was I thinking with all that pouff??? So, I'd love to hear from you about your hand-made home-made disasters. And be sure to add me to the blogs you follow as I'm sure I'll have lots more to give away over time. I'll be reading your comments and I'll let you know who gets to 'adopt' Amber on Tuesday.
Sssshhhh, just don't look too hard at the seams!
