Well, I have been sewing for once. I am very happy that I have completed a project, rather than just thinking about it, and wishing it would 'make itself'.
I used one of the books that I got from Corrie and choose one of my Florence Broadhurst fabrics to make large shoulder bag. I added a little mobile pocket and another pocket on the inside (as I am always losing my mobile and keys in big bags). It took me a little time, as I was trying to 'read' the Japanese instructions (no, I don't understand any Japanese). But I finished it last night in record time (considering). I will definitely make more, as I really love the style. However, I may have to choose a different fabric, as the Florence Broadhurst fabric meant that materials alone were close to $40. Not cheap, but I love it anyway.
Not sure if I will keep it, or give it to my sister for her birthday next month...it is OK, I don't think she knows about this blog.
