So I made a shopper based on the one that had served me so well. I used the rest of my really thick upholstery fabric from my office furnishings here.
It did turn out a little bit bigger because I did big seam allowances but that is all good.
I started to think how I could recreate the padded handles on the old bag and then thought ... hang on.. I am throwing this old one away in half an hour so I stitch ripped them off and used them again as they were fine.
To finish the bag edges I had a go with my new bias binding maker which bloke bought me for Christmas - I know, isn't he brilliant? I must remember to keep my amazon wish list up to date next year!
It made quick and easy bias binding by threading a strip of fabric through the wide end, sliding the tool along the ironing board and ironing what comes out of the other end. So Simple and effective.
I sort of want to put binding on everything now! I did not post much last week because I have been working away on the scary blanket and the beautiful shawl so more to show you soon. It is Mummy Monday where I don't have work or any taxing chores so Little M and I are off to a playbarn with a friend to play, laugh and relax.
Happy Monday.Jo x
