I had a very busy week last week sewing, trying to get as much done as I could. Since now we are into school summer vacation and gone are the days of sitting at the sewing machine and sewing the day away. I will try to get some done, but it will be in between traveling with the boys. We just came back from our first trip of the summer we went to Sudbury, Ontario.
I finished sewing 5 bags last week. I used Lisa Lam's Compact Groceries Tote Pattern, I made a Beach Bag, and a Bag I call The New York Bag I got the tutorial from thimble.ca. www.thimble.ca. The fun thing with these bags is I used some themed fabrics England, Canada, and New York.
I got the tutorial for this bag that I call The New York Bag at www.thimble.ca. Laural wrote a great tutorial for it. It is big, it should hold lots of stuff for the gym, beach or what ever. I added some grommets on the handle and the metal hardware to add some bling. This is a surprise bag for one of my friends, she heads to New York when ever she can. It is fun coming up with different ways to change up patterns.
