I finally managed to finish Mum's Mother's Day pressie today. In all it's taken a week!! Most of that time was taken trying to work out how to do it as I've never made a bag before even though I've been wanting to for ages.
I used an article in Craft's Beautiful magazine, but found the description of how to do it confusing as there weren't pictures of doing the corners and this was the bit I got stuck on. Luckily the laptop came back in time for me to find a tutorial online. And now I know, it seems very stupid of me to not have got it!
I used the fabric I got from ebay that I covered a canvas with for my kitchen.
I'd decided to do mum a knitting bag as she has got back into knitting again recently and is using a very old bag (not me). Mum taught me to knit when I was a child and she also taught me to sew, so I wanted to make something for her for her hobbies. Mum used to make a load of mine and Lynne's clothes when we were smaller and I still love the smell you get when you iron new fabric.
To show the size, the hairy one volunteered to get into the bag. Speaking of the hairy one, I've spent a long time trying to work out if it's male or female and he looks male to me, apart from the colouring of his fur coat, which led my weird brain on a bit of a wander.....
.......finally ending with another male who liked fur coats and other lady coloured clothing......
...........and so from now on he will be known as Mr Humphries.
Twisty has felt very left out with all this fur talk and kidnapped the WIP.
Finally I finished a rabbit for Holly, the new baby who arrived last week. Don't look too closely at the mouth, I did it about 5 times before I got something resembling a happy face!
