Yet again December has gone past in a blur, and now we have the lovely time between Christmas and New Year, a few days off work and time to put my feet up. I have spent a pleasant afternoon catching up on the blogs I follow.
My husband and I (goodness I sound like the Queen) started December with a night in London and of course a visit to Liberty
and an early morning Eurostar to Brussels for the Christmas Market and chocolate shopping.
I took the weekend bag I made here, I was very pleased with the way it stood up to being dragged round trains, underground, eurostar, metro and back again.
I also made a matching shoulder bag, using the Trail tote free pattern from Noddlehead, here, again all the metal hardware, zips and fabric were recycled.
This is an easy bag to make with good clear instructions, I slightly messed it up by not tapering the piping out before the top of the bag, which then made it difficult to top stitch. I have hand stitched (a bit wonky in places) a running stitch with embroidery floss.
I am now going to pour myself a drink and spend a relaxing evening catching up with more blogs, cheers………..
