What a great week-end for sewing! I locked myself away all day Sunday and got a lot of things made, and came up with a whole list of other things I want to tackle. I woke up this morning with my brain spinning with ideas…but alas, had to head off to work instead.
I have definitely discovered that I am not a sewer who can handle making the same thing over and over. I made two more satchels and have to admit that I am all satchelled out for the time being. I do love the finished bags, though.
The one on the right is made with some of my Grandmother’s fabric. I think it is my new favourite. The one behind was made from a pair of worn-out pants. I love giving old fabrics new life! I used blue for the topstitching to coordinate with the blue shirt I used for the lining. The pocket inside is the pocket from the shirt.
Isn’t recycling fun?
If you missed it, you can find my first group of satchels and information about the pattern here.
