Bags...check!


The day held promise...DH away & DS at school...home alone & the washing is done! Don't mention the ironing or dirty windows though! So off to the sewing room I trundled...things to do...things to do! My non blogging friend Lea wouldn't come & play as she said she had big sewing plans too!

                                             
So then I started....finished the BonBon bag which I was making for a work colleagues retirement gift....I love the colours & the chocolate zip... I have made quite a few of them now...they are great as knitting or project bags...& they are so cute!

  Then I made a start on another Thelma bag...love the bright freshness of these fabrics. ..Whimsy & Mezzanine which I bought at Blueberries. Now I just need to find a vintage buckle & it is ready to go.
Dear Lea picked me up as I needed a photo ID for one of my jobs & I showed her the bags...she had been distracted by Sudoku...but she went home motivated!

It is so good to have finished something!

Sounds like we're having the same kind of day!! The house all to myself while the kids are at school- now I really need to get off the computer and into the sewingroom... Love your bags, they are so pretty!

Love your bags! I wish I had more time to sew. Then I could tear myself away from quilts long enough to make more bags, pillows, etc.
