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...........so meone 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.
