Happy St. David's Day! - Dewi Sant in Welsh
The first of March already, and a glimpse of my latest make with my two lovely calendars - pretty flowered one by Claire Leggett and the photography one showing Malvern Hills by Che. I was inspired to make this little shopper bag when I saw Tracy's make on her 'Mad about bags' blog.
The picture above is from last years' google doodle. I just love the idea of the red dragon having tea with a little welsh lady in traditional dress; a story in the making.
Now, back to my sewing make. . . .
The seaside shopper. Although its still winter here, it is St.David's day, and you always have to take something from the sea back with you, in my case some pretty seaside fabric.
Front view of the bag ... sandy linen from my stash, patches from the main promenade fabric, deck-chair striped ribbons for the window picture frame. The strap is from an old yoga strap that has been lying around. Back view ... the main fabric - my Mumbles memento - you will just have to imagine the shells, pebbles, bucket and spade. I also have to give a mention to B. who was with me when I bought the material, has brewed up while I was sewing and brought me back the striped ribbons.
Having a tidy up of the sewing boxes. The last photo of a sweet sewing basket was a Christmas present from Sean and Lucy. I have left the label on 'sewing basket perfect for avid sewers'; I have basket under false pretences - but I do love to sew.
Started a little patchwork something with bits from the bag lining and main fabric. I still have some left. What should I make next do you think?
