I got together with Lynn and Valerie yesterday and I finished my Sashiko bag!! Oh I’m so chuffed with how it turned out!! This pic looks a little floppy ~ hmmmm …. oh all’s well, I see why it looks so strange …… My CEO in charge of quality control had just popped in to do a final inspection …. you know, check I didn’t leave a stitch unstitched or a tuck untucked ……..Happy to report that the bag passed inspection :o)!! Here’s Valerie’s, Lynn’s and my bags all lined up for their first photo shoot ….. The pattern came from an old Homespun Magazine, I’m sorry, I have no idea which one, but I could probably find out if there’s anyone that wants to know :o). Don’t they all look so different!!??!
We had a bit of time to spare when we were done so we made these rewards cards wallets (see the free tutorial on my sidebar) ……A few friends had mentioned that they wanted one so we made them “to order” in the colours they like :o).
I must say a big Thank you all so much for the comments on my poor little car. I’m off to get some quotes today and see what we’re up against. Nothing’s cheap when fixing a car so I’m well prepared. So glad we have insurance :o)!!
Have you seen Dawn’s blog??? Sweety that she is, she’s made a gawjus bag called “Mahal Kita” ………and the pattern is for sale with ALL the proceeds going to Baseco (more info Dawn’s blog). The PDF pattern is just $4 so please pop over to see Dawn and help out this fabulous cause.
Hope all is well in your little corner of the world ;o) …….
