I used up the rest of the dress fabric and made a matching handbag to go with this dress. I think it will look way over the top but who cares. I hate putting away little bits, they never get used up so while I was clearing the decks I just got rid of all the bits.
The bag is from a free online tutorial. If you use my pinterest link and look on the Sewing board you will find loads of lovely bags to have a go at. My wish list is endless as far as these sorts of short easy to handle sewing projects go.
I have found that if I do a bit of sewing in between the yarn work I don't get muscle aches and pains so much and the
girls love the output.
I highly recommend magnet clasps for a really professional finish they look so much better than scrappy buttonholes or industrial looking press studs. You can get them here and they came extra fast. I have used one and have nine more to go so back to pintrest to dream awhile. Jo xx
