Sunday sewing!

It all started last Friday,my daughter asked me to help her with a project from this book,I then decided it was time to attend to the fabric on my cutting table,so I came to a decision, and this bag came to life; I am pleased with the outcome...heavy Japanese cotton canvas from here, natural unbleached linen lining,soft refurbished leather accents,my knitting tag and a cool snap; that's it,and I love it...simple and fresh; now this new velvet ribbon...soft and plush...

Wow - that came out so nicely! Sewing is not my strong suit - I recall having to sew a top in highschool home economics class and it was a nightmare. Have you thought about sewing a vintage apron? I think that would be fun to make too.

The bag is divine. I took a quick peek at the book, there were some very nice things to make. Makes the sewing machine start to get fidgety.
