Your bag is looking good to me. So far I've made two bags the first was an envelope type with a flap lid  but about as large as a messenger bag and the second one ( still in progress) has been modified using the first model as a learning curve. I've made a lot of changes mainly concerning the handle because the fist would not hang correctly and kept bending in on itself so I've had to strengthen it by putting a clear plastic notes containing envelope inside so it holds its shape.  Sad


Yours looks lovely and the materials..........what can I say other than I wish I was the swap partner. Roll Eyes

"I swear the hardest part is choosing which fabrics I want to use and which I have to leave out!!" 

Exactly i spend more time looking through my stuff and sorting out nice beads etc than I do actually sewing. I organise all my things around me and MUST have eveerything I MIGHT need within reach when mostly I only need needles and threads Cheesy

The bead I made was very fiddley and its a bit wonky but now i know what i'm doing I think they can only get better Undecided

I have invested in a second hand bedding chest and put some wheels on it and now i can have my sewing stuff in the lounge all the time. It makes a handy occassional seat too! Grin

Hi Folks,

Nice work Belladune love the colours and I sympathise with the paper I am not bery good at that part myself  Undecided I have taken to making purses etc because they don't have paper inside Cheesy

I have made this today  I've used Teesha edges but machine quilting for speed. Its just to keep my pencils in for my new college course. I am sure that although its finished I will continue to embellish for quite some time.






I have managed to make one of the beads I saw on a link somebody posted on here a while back, thats what you can see dangling at one side of my pencil case.

Its been quiet here recently is everybody busy sewing or just lost interest...........I hope not.

Yes Craftylm is right you can use all of the things she said ( i do the same) but yesterday I was lucky enough to see an advert  for these buttons on an online selling site...........23 bags of buttons with at least 100 in each for 1 euro per bag.......Some of the buttons are fabric covered and so i can dye them any colour i want yey! Cheesy



Look on ebay or in the local newspaper small ads or even write a WANTED small ad yourself and put it on the board in the local shops or doctors surgery asking people for unwanted buttons. Smiley

I Love the red themed journal and and maybe gonna have to try and make one with a spine myself, they look so much better i think.

I myself ahve been away fro a few days and have been busily making my secong shoulder bad. I have done a new design due to 'issues' with my first attempt. Thats coming along fine and i should have pics within the week.

I am also trying to make some fabric 'beads' following a link somebody placed on this stitchalong........They will make great accessories or keyrings that go great with the items made on here...

If I could embroider then I'd deffo do a vine however I cannot embroider so it'll probably have to be the random stitches over the whole area or maybe some spirals .

Thanks for the comments people its great coming on here for show n tell you learn so much and see so much it wonderful Cheesy

So I am patiently waiting for todays photos...........someone somewhere must have something for us to feast our eyes on today. Shocked

Awesome bag! And yes, definately embellish the strap a bit more, taking care to keep it comfortable though. You could make it a work in progress, adding to it over time...

Yes i think I'll do this so that I can start using it right away and it won't be 'forced' decoration.............I'll just add as I find nice little things on my travels.

I will probably decorate only so far up too due me having long hair and not wanting to get tangled up..........maybe be patches at the top. I know by the time i am finished the thing will be far too heavy to carry. Cheesy

Nice patches Taraston I can't wait to see what you make with them and how you tackle putting them together. Wink

Ok I think I have finally finished my bag strap and all.

Take a look guys and tell me if you think I should decorate the strap as well. I have numerous ideas including some lovely little embroidered and crocheted flowers. I have done the Teesha turned over edges  and a couple of wavy lines with the sewing machine for the quilting effect because there is fibre fill inside the strap. Not sure cause I think it looks ok as is but my husband thinks I should embellish it more..






I am also going to add an inner pocket for my phone and a strip of fabric so that I have 2 compartments.
