September Friday Night with Friends

Where has the last month gone?  It seems the last time I was on this laptop was a month ago.  Oh well, we did get away for a couple of weeks to Fiji and I have been doing lots of sewing ready for OCC Christmas boxes.

But last night I started a pattern test for a new bag soon to be released by two pretty poppets.  It is called 'Stand Up and Tote Notice'.

I got the bag and all the interfacings cut out and joined together.

Have you used magnetic clips on your bags?  I often use buttons instead, but not any more!  They are really easy!

The directions with the pattern are really clear and have plenty of pictures for 'visual' people like me.  It wasn't long before the front, back and lining were made.

But this is where sleep called!

So I had to wait until this afternoon to finish the bag..... and here it is:

If you would like the pattern (which comes with three sizes), it is worth contacting 'two pretty poppets'  as it is due to be released in the next couple of weeks.  My bag is a medium.

I hope you had a productive night as you crafted with me.
