Had a great day out yesterday with the girls at one of our local craft shops, she does lot's of different courses there from basic sewing to fantastic altered art projects!!! We chose to do the workbag class as we all liked the look of the little drawsting bag with pockets on the outside, and so very practical for us crafters LOL. Jean made a gorgeous black and white gingham bag, with bright pink hearts appliqued on the pockets. Wanda went for sandy colours with chocolate brown hearts, very lovely, and me well, blue and green obviously! After several mishaps, ok, I sewed the base of the bag in at the top ups...........LOL, Jean very patiently un-picked it for me and gave me a quick lesson, she is such a wizz on a sewing machine! I don't think it turned out too bad, well I'm proud of my little self anyway . May have to have another go on a bigger version, jean's number is programmed in the phone ready LOL. Elizabeth xxx Nearly forgot we also made a scissor holder and pin cushion to match!

Trust me Ladies, mine was the ugly duckling compared to the others. Not a wizz with a sewing machine as you may have gathered, but if I can do it, must be easy eh? xxxx

It looks just as good here as it does irl. I have already made another two and need some more brown lining so I can make a big brother for my little bag!

I tried to comment on your fab bag a couple of days ago but Blogger just froze on me each time. A good days works at the workshop is this and well worth the perseverance and effort (especially
Loving your tag too - gorgeous stamp and great colours.
