A New Favourite?

Standard

Good evening. I hope you are all well.

I must admit to feeling rather summer like, despite the weather. I think it must be due to my latest obsessional make. You will remember my last make; let me remind you……….

I cannot believe the response to this little bag. I was rather proud of it as it is just the right size for a small handbag or sandwich bag, and by all the compliments it received I know that many other people liked it too.

Anyway, due to a mix up with the post office, (a long story with a disappointing outcome) my Niece was one birthday present short. Booooo! What to do?

I needed a container to hold the replacement packages that would extend birthday salutations……even if they were a little late.

I hit on a plan. Something that would be stronger than a birthday parcel bag and could be used again and again.

Have a look…………

………create another handbag.

As you can see I have lowered the handles on this model, which I think I prefer. I have also begun to make a bigger beach bag model. I’ll keep you posted.

Anyway this little floral number has, I am pleased to say, eventually made it to its destination so I am able to post without letting the cat out of the bag.

 

See you soon. xxxxxxx
