Did some sewing finally this week

Managed to get some time to do some sewing in. I made two bags using Simplicity pattern 2551.
The yellow bag is made from my friends curtains and some fabric another friend donated from her stash. Youngest daughter loves the touchy feely ness of the velvet curtains and the different material for the inside and pockets. Friend L wants a bag like it too, with Kangaroo lining. Well maybe Christmas present for her I think. 

I then used some left over from my Ikea curtains to make another bag. I teamed this with Spring Street by P&B Textiles as the lining and trim. I like the green bag best but daughter one has claimed it. I am allowed to borrow it though. 
Have a good weekend.


  1. I love your fabric selection on the second bag. Nice work.

  2. The bags are fab, best not let my daughter see them!!!
