A few months ago I made this bag, which drove me slightly potty in the process. Well, it has been much admired - the fabric that is, not my bag making abilities. So this is version two, made as a gift to a friend. And this time it worked almost effortlessly (except I did take a few months to get round to it. I blame technical difficulties with my now redundant sewing machine. Nothing to do with procrastination).
I don't have any little 'pebbledash' labels to sew in to the side seam, so to make it more 'mine' I drilled two holes in a pebble to make a button for a tab.
Wish I had one on my bag now. And I need a smaller drill bit so the holes are neater. But I am pleased, and my finishing is better this time (I love my new machine!). Best of all, my friend loves it, and that's what really matters.
Have a happy weekend. I'm going foraging with Fat Hen (there'll be lots of cooking and eating too).
