I was hoping for a little sewing time, but as that was off the agenda, I thought I'd make a start on a holiday bag. I much appreciated your input regarding patterns, and tempted as I was by the others, I decided to have a go at the Noodlehead Super tote (Please don't be offended I didn't use yours Katy!).
The reason my brain hurts is that it took me a good hour or two to sort out all the pattern pieces, tape them together, and lay them out on the fabric. That was before I started cutting! The cutting tested my brain power a not insignificant amount too - let's blame my menopausal brain shall we! Anyways, it's all done now
and the interfacing is all fused on, ready to get going in the morning. I think I've done the hard bit now. The pattern instructions and assembly look fairly straight forward, but you may like to ask me that again this time tomorrow, when I, fingers crossed, I will have put the whole thing together.
Before I go, if you're interested in a low volume charm swap, head over to flickr , Rachel from the Floral Suitcase is organising a swap and is still looking for a few more peeps to fill the spaces in the second group.
I've picked out this fabric, for all the Dowton Abbey fans in the swap.
That's all for now folks. I have some binding to sew down in from of a roaring fire!
