Three mothers set ourselves the task of sewing thirty five bags. At home I cut most of the fabric for the bags (wincing as I cut into those beautiful sheets) and about half of the seventy handles required, in preparation for a session at one mamma's place with an overlocker - one cutting, one ironing, one overlocking. We then split the bags to finish off at home which I did on my mum's not so trusty old singer. Phew! Hard work! I so admire anyone who sews for a living.
Next project is inspired by Amanda's Button Flower Blanket in her lovely new book. This is a chair bag for Elsa at school, made from recycled wool blankets, it hangs on the back of her chair to store bits and pieces. These felted blue flowers are made from one of Hugo's old jumpers and I'll embroider Elsa's name along side them, hopefully sometime today in the sunshine.
Thanks so much to Kirsty for hosting and do check out more creative spaces at Kootoyoo.
