I bought this fabulous fabric from Spoonflower almost 4 months ago! I bought it for Isobel and the plan was to make her a bag. Anyway, almost 4 months down the track I have finally made it!! yay.
It has been so frustrating as not much sewing and not much art making has been going on, due to feeling poorly as you know. But I am now just doing a few minutes here and there whenever I can. I am leaving my sewing machine set up so I can just sit and sew even if it's only a seam or two and despite it being totally in the way. I have my studio space but that feels a bit cold and lonely at the moment, even though it's actually not far from anyone and doesn't even have a door or walls. It's not a room as such, and some days I do dream of a door, but it would just mean more heating!!
I must say, it feels so wonderful to have something sewn actually finished. A messenger bag.
I will keep my projects simple but try to make them well. It would do my head in I think trying to work out a complicated pattern.
