Weekend Sewing

Last week I treated myself to a copy of Weekend Sewing by Heather Ross. What swung it was seeing other peoples Yard-Sale Wrap Skirt. I need to think about buying some fabric for the skirt project, but in the meantime I thought I would try out the Weekend-Away Travel Bag.

The pattern and instructions were easy to follow, and it took me just a few grabbed hours. I am fairly pleased with the result, although I think the inside pockets should be larger, so they come up the insides of the bag further. The first time I have inserted a zipper too!
This is being wrapped up for a good friends birthday... one day I will make something and keep it for myself!
And, I finished the bunting! Yey! It only took me a year! Here it is bundled into a big blue Ikea bag along with other bits for the wedding which is in FIVE days. Goodness. Pictures of the bunting in-situ will follow after the event. Promise.

Lovely purse thingy... I made one of those but couldn't figure out how to line it, so I think a looksy at Amazon might be in order!! x
