Some Actual sewing!!

A bit of a rush job early (6.30am) on Saturday morning. Franecsca's chum Amy is seven next week and having a birthday during the summer break means an early party. We had lots of trouble with Elizabeth's being in August; people are away or say yes and then forget, so Amy's Mummy very sensibly took a group of the girls to the cinema and out for lunch yesterday.

Francesca asked me to make Amy a bag like her school bag, she chose the fabric and everything, super organised but there hasn't been time this week. Work has been mental busy and I have been bringing stuff home to do in the evenings which would normally have been sewing time. I assured Francesca that it would get made but as it's not quite Amy's birthday yet maybe I could sew it all together on Monday and she could take it to school? Oh no, that was just not good enough!! So early morning sewing it was;

It's a scaled down version of my slouchy bag. I am very pleased with how it turned out (hope I haven't made any mistakes with rushing), the little zippy pouch matches the bag front and back!

I hope she likes it, happy birthday Amy!!

What have you been sewing this week?

Aw! What a sweet gift and it certainly doesn't look like a rush job. I haven't sewed anything this week (although I did ATTEMPT to sew up a hole in the back of my leather-ish boots - not happening!) but started knitting a baby hat with bunny ears at about 6.30 this morning. I'm only about 8 rows in and it's cute already. That is the joy of tiny hats on circular needles :)

The bag and the pouch are both gorgeous, I'm sure Amy will love them.

The only sewing I've done this week is make a long sleeved shirt into short sleeves and added a pocket to it.
