Almost a Month!

Almost a month since I last did a blog post - where has April gone?

Spent the long weekend making hand bags.

My first ones I made were from the D'Arcy-Jean Milne book "Fabric Leftovers" using all my scraps of fabric and lace and fat quarters that I had won as door prizes at our local craft group and having fun with the stitches on my machine. Really happy that the local sewing shop (which is closing down - very sad) has found the attachment to go on my machine from the computer so that I can change the embroidery stitches when I want.

I have found some other patterns for larger and different shape bags so had fun making them

Larger bags

I have more of the larger ones cut and ready to sew. I have altered the pattern so that a whole bag will come out of a fat quarter so using up some of my stash.
