Weekender


I sewed my little fingers to the bone getting my weekend bag finished for the, er, weekend (funnily enough). Here it is, stuffed to the gills with my things for a couple of nights away (actually, it was plenty big enough for pjs and stuff).


Hand sewing the lining was a major PINA and I have several pin pricks in my hands from catching them on the long pins, but I am so pleased with the finished bag. I added a little pretty flower, because I like to rebel when following patterns.


I need to take some better pictures for the Amy Butler contest. This is the first time I have entered and the standard is always very high indeed.

Gorgeous bag. Love the fabric, and the flower - you rebellious soul you!

LOL @ the day trip to Southport, well, you just have to don't you. Did you have chippy tea while you were there?
Next time you're up you'll have to give me a shout and we can go for coffee or something (assuming I can get someone to watch the sproglets for an hour or 3, because small people + coffee establishments = getting barred and never being able to return).
love xMx

Fab bag! The fabric is ideal for that design. I like the flower and I also like to change/add to the designs for that competition. I have the Sophia pattern but not started it yet, I will do that next time whenever that will be. I really do like your bag, in fact I am going to go back and have another look!!

Sorry, it is me again, did you stiffen the bag? I have seen some that look too rigid to me, I like a bit of give in my bags for 'stuffing' things in?

CUTE bag! And it would've been SO ugly if you hadn't added that flower.
(Teasing. I tease.)
I'm so envious of your sewing prowess.
It's gorgeous darling!
