I have been on a sewing spree for the last two weeks and I love it. It’s more than what I’m used too. So far four projects done for others, I had to do something for myself. While watching the BBC’s Charles Dickens’s Little Dorrit, I stitched something useful and quite green.
Something like a new bag. From leftover fabrics.
The outer shell is of dark blue denim with a lovely front contrast pocket. It has a very comfy, wide shoulder strap and two side tote straps. I took inspiration from my old gray/black bag.
And this beauty of a bag: Scottie Big Bags Messenger Tote Bag
Back to my bag, I did the lining in light blue linen and I added good, useable pocket this time. Plus I used a stiff bottom for an old baby bag to remedy my floppy bag bottom. Please forgive my stuff being in the bag while taking the pic, I’m very excited to use it.
Okay, for my next completed project, remember the Dick & Jane curtains.
Imagine that cloth made into a tote bag. I have stitched THIS:
My client adores D&J and had a lot of cloth leftover from her curtains, so she commissioned a tote bag.
Yes, I have a feeling that Dick & Jane will be reappearing in some future project yet I don’t know as what?
