This is my sewing area - but strictly in the warmer weather.
As you know - I'm an 'old bag'. I love making bags. Not only the ones in my Etsy shop but also handbags. I DO try to buy ready made bags but REFUSE to pay a fortune for them as I 'fall out' with them after a short while. Then there's the problem of choosing a bag. Too much and not enough choice!!!
So, I usually end up making one for myself.
What pattern do I use? Well again there's a problem. I spend ages searching and searching the internet but can never find the 'right one' and even if I could I can never understand the directions on 'how to' make them.
In the end I just 'start'!!!! You can see the newspaper that I cut up to make the 'on the hoof' pattern and the denim that this bag is made of. The rest will follow as I've been making it now for a week or so. Many interruptions have caused it to be 'slow work'.
