First two things sewn in 2008

This is a sign of things to come... chances are Ill create loads of crafts at the one time as opposed to one a week :-p

First off I made a peg bag. Ive been meaning to make this for ages and ages, since we moved in here 6 months ago in fact. This wasnt very thought out and I just kind of improvised. Had to sew with tissue on each side when I was doing the opening as the vinyl was sticking to the presser foot. I got really annoyed with the vinyl and have to say that I probably wouldnt use it again. I just didnt have fun with it. Regardless, here it is...




2nd crafty project was a bag for a workmate using specific fabric that she wanted. We work in a place called Dunelm Mill which has loads of things for the home and has a huge habedashery/fabric department. She specified Diamante Black fabric for the outside and pink on the inside and this is what I made her...





Its just a simple shoulder bag. Both fabrics I used are VERY thin so although I like the slouchy look I used sew in interfacing in this. I really like this. The Diamante fabric gives a really nice exterior. My only problem with it is that I didnt centre the handles enough so its slightly one sided. But I will definately be making more bags with this fabric.

Well done! Did you use a pattern?

Nah I dont tend to use patterns. I just whack things together.

With regards to bag making if you can get on top of the Jordy bag making model then you can pretty much adapt it through experimentation to what you like.
