We took a fambley photo to celebrate the occasion:
As promised I got my sewing head on and have made six bags so far today, with another two ready to assemble once I've blogged.
They are all simple lined tote bags, with enough strap to go over the shoulder but not so much that the bag drags on the floor when it's held in the hand. I haven't put clasps or fastenings on as I wanted to keep them as simple as possible and to keep the price down. I figure the parents going to the school fairs may not be taking wads of cash so thought I'd play it safe or maybe it's not safe and will come back and bite me in the bum!! A matter of wait and see.
Bag 3. Ruby's favourite 'cos she matches it :o)
Bag 4. The only fabric for these bags that was bought from an actual fabric shop - ages ago before I wised up to charity shops and the scrapstore.
So that was today. No time for a 'lunch break' - what's one of those?
I did find time for a tiny bit of bloggage though and I'm not the only one celebrating the arrival of a beautiful new ape baby - see here if you want more wonderful Monkee goodness.
No hanging about tonight - gotta go sew!
Tomorrow morning is written off with a whole morning of nasty gum treatment at the dental school and the afternoon will be spent grocery shopping and taking paracetomol. I'll be squeezing in some crafting and monkeying about no doubt :o)
P.S. Hello Helen - you know who you are ;o)
