And there's more...

Here we have the Sadie bag, named so because of my workfriend Sadie when i pulled this one out of the bag to show her got very excited..."00h i like that one" i always take my projects in to show them to see what they think...i think she liked this one lol

then we have the wallet this has a bag to match but i can't show you that yet as it still needs its button lol, most of the bags will have wallets to match, i have one of these wallets that i use all the time and love it

it was crop day today and we were all very industrious, got a bag made a wallet to match finished and another bag a 1/3 of the way through, my poor machine is so tired and needs a rest so it has been left in its trolley, but sshhh just for tonight, it will be back out and busy tomorrow lol

Another bag

this one was a pressie for my friend jak, but it is from the same pattern (dotty delight) a real summery feel, it just shows how different they can be when using a different fabric.

watch this space another design finish to come later............
