Just recently, patterns by Dog Under My Desk have been keeping me very occupied…I have made s few gifts (which I can’t show you yet) with Erin’s patterns and found that her construction techniques were so beautifully written, each step flows smoothly into the next, I was hooked!
A FB friend introduced me to these designs and truly, I totally love all of them!
I put my hand up when Erin was asking for pattern testers
This bag is called Take Off Tote and I made it for myself with fabric I bought at the weekend from The Eternal Maker in Chichester, wow what a shop that is! A cafe, fabric and yarn all under one roof…I think I need to spend longer there next time and maybe I should start saving now!! I have only ever bought from them online before, but we wanted to visit Maise as she is at Uni there. We did a little Christmas shopping and our last stop was the glorious fabric shop.
I also treated myself to a new popper gun, this one attaches plastic poppers to garment, no more shocks for little people! Whenever I used the metal poppers on garments, I would think that the coldness of the metal would make a baby jump!
and lots of coloured poppers…
So back to the pattern testing
Here is the fabric that was purchased on Saturday afternoon
all the pieces cut and interfaced and wadded where necessary
I enjoyed sewing this very much
and perfect results
I am going to enjoy using this gorgeous bag….but now, I have to leave the bags alone and get on with a few more of the many presents I have yet to make, I do have a list, but not really enough time to do all the sewing that I’d like to, I will just do my best and see what happens
Time to refer to my list…x
