outside but it was too hot. I caught this sleek black thing catching
some shade under the bench which was under our brolly!
I wanted to contribute to the Bag Tombola at the FOQ at the NEC
in August but not being a patchworker was at a loss at what to do.
I eventually decided to make a shopping bag and make a pouch
for it. I hope it will be good enough. The shopping bag was made
from some poly/cotton and I made sure the seams were double
stitched and the handles strong. The pouch was made by layering
some furnishing fabric (left over from the doorstop), some orange
poly/cotton and some polyester voile for slippiness then free
motion stitching the layers together just following the design on
at 9.30am and it tickled me. I wonder if they'll return to full price when
we get the showers that are forecast this week.
