Linda is a most talented photographer... in fact, any time you see a photograph here that is in focus and just looking fantastic, it will be the work of Linda.
The pattern is for the weekend-away travel bag from Heather Ross' Weekend Sewing. A canvas weight fabric is recommended in the pattern, so I interfaced this much lighter weight fabric with some heavy duty stuff, and the contrast bits and lining are made from upholstery type fabric from the pile purchased an age ago to make some bunting for Reuben and Casper when they were still small. I didn't include the optional lining pockets as I could only imagine with some dread the groaning that would result from my poor sewing machine as it tried to sew through the already fairly chunky layers, but other than that the pattern was fine. I do wish I had thought to include some little zip tab thingies at each end though...
It was nice to be reminded of this book as I've only so far made Kai's shirt and Lucy's kimono. Hmmm, some more makes to add to the I-will-find-time-for-these list.
Makes have been a bit slow recently... there are a few to show but the weather has been so gloomy that all attempts at taking photographs of them are rather gloomy too. And in between the glum weather I have been trying oh so hard to tame the field that is our garden
The plants in the front garden have been there for about two years and are looking rather settled. Now the bleeding hearts, lungwort, spiraea, forget-me-nots and geums have stopped flowering it is all looking a bit green but hopefully in the next few weeks the colour will return!
