Second Bucket bag

Have just finished my second bucket bag. Have lengthened the handles by a total of 4 inches and think its much better

What do you think?

Bucket bag

SV203079Had a go at this bag tonight but as it was a try out I used some fabric that didn’t matter if it went wrong. Not a disaster but not great. Have definitely decided that the handles need to be slightly longer. Also need to tack the binding first so that it’s neater. Also not too sure about which interfacing is best. Will be interesting to see other Shabby chic members’ efforts.

End of May Half term

It’s ages since I have posted so there is loads to catch up on. Towards the end of half term we camped with some friends at a site near Woodbridge. Much to the amusement of other campers , up went my bunting:

On the Friday I persuaded Harry to drive to Bungay to a marvellous fabric shop where I spent over an hour drooling over fabric and eventually emerged with the following.

On the Saturday we spent time in Woodbridge where Harry danced with Green Dragon and I went shopping and stopped occasionally to watch the dancing.
