Wasting time

Oh there's so much to do. Mr Marmadaisy and I are away for the weekend, going to the wedding that never was (don't ask!) and I still haven't written my final assignment for university, or even started revising.



The only thing to do was follow this tutorial and make a bag to put toiletries in when we go away.



The lining is waterproof, so it's ideal for wet shower stuff. I made these piped handles and am really pleased with it.




I did make a slight alteration as I used one of those "cut to size" zippers and attached my inserts first, then sewed the zip in place.

Try that link again, please.
I can't say anymore about the "wedding" as it isn't my news to blog. Sorry.

Firstly - sorry for being a terribly bad bloggy buddy and not commenting on here for ages. I have no defense except having to deal with annoying students ;)

Secondly - I love that bag!! That fabric is just too cute for words. It looks great. Bet you're adding that pattern to your handmade Christmas gifts list - and if you're not you should be ;)

Hope you have a good time at the wedding.

Love that fabric! Perfect choice for an away toiletry bag. Maybe you can forget the wedding that wasn't and just enjoy being away ..... hope it wasn't somewhere dreadful.
