I have been making bags again, they are my favourite thing to make. It is also a great way to put a dint into my growing (again) fabric stash. Bags being so simple lend themselves well to sewing in stages, when ever you can sneak over to the sewing nook even for a few minutes you can get another bit done. How cute is this Japanese linen with it's little French print. I am really happy with how these worked out. The pattern evolved as I was going along, you know when you think, "I can just do this and if I add this here..." Next time I will try and draw up a pattern as I go along so I have it for a rainy day.
