changing weather...changing wardrobe

I love the sun and the bright cheery weather it brings BUT I don't like it too hot. This time of year is perfect for me, sunny and cheerful but with a slight nip in the air and now the weather has changed my wardrobe needs updating.
So on Wednesday I made myself a new every-day bag

It has room for everything necessary and it holds it's shape quite nicely (thanks to the interfacing)John took this picture....the bag is empty here and it's my *gasp* hip/leg making the dent in it BUT I am wearing my new Monsoon work trousers and new thin black jumper :-) A close up of the bag because I love how the Amy Butler fabric looks. It's been used for 2 days now so it has a kind of worn look to it, but I like it!!

Making this bag has also inspired me to make something else and hopefully I will make that this evening......

what a sweet bag! i didn't use interfacing in mine, the corduroy was so thick to stitch anyway!

Hells bells and little fishes! Looking at that top picture I thought you must be a giant!! But I see now that it hangs low.

And it's nice. Very nice. (so now I'm looking forward to seeing what else it inspired)

I feel very left out that I haven't made a bag yet!!!! :D so I am going to try (and more than likely fail miserably). I really like that Amy Butler print too, nice and bright on days like today. (although this time of year is my fave too)

The bag looks good, I have bought some denim off of ebay to make some little boy aprons. It has taken me ages to find some good quality denim. I think anything made up in denim looks great.

see you later for your new creation.
