Bag Challenge

Well, I finished by bag for the EB challenge today. It's the Artsy Clutch from my Bend the Rules Sewing book. It's a pretty simple design and only took me an hour or so to do it but I'm pleased with how it's turned out. It's definitely given me confidence to try something a bit more complex next time. Challenges are great motivators and I'd definitely participate in another.




I went on a late(ish) night trip to SL last night. Going without M is so much easier and more enjoyable. I actually had time to have a proper look around rather than just adopt my 'smash and grab' tactics when she's with me. I bought loads, including some pretty fabrics to run up some summer pieces for M:





Next on my 'to do' list is to make a baby kimono for a friend's soon-to-arrive bub and seeing as I'm on a bit of a roll I might make a start today...
