I have a few things to post so will start off with the Ziggy Bag.
I tested this bag for Jen Giddens, about two weeks ago I think, but have been waiting for the bag to be named and for Jen to put it on her blog before I posted here.
This is Jen's blog http://jengiddens.blogspot.de/ Go over and take a look at all the other bags made by her testers. Such a variety with all the different fabrics used. It's amazing how one pattern can be made to look so different.
Ok here's mine.
As usual being the rebel I am I had to do my own thing. I chose upholstery fabrics rather than cottons and made a pleather strap instead of a fabric one. The other thing I did which wasn't on the pattern was the hand stitching around the gusset, oh yes and I used metal zips which were a little wider than the ordinary zips used in the pattern. Apart form that it's the same. LOLL
This really is a useful bag with the two separate zip pockets on the outside and two pockets on the inside.
There's also a main zipper closure so all your personals will be safe and sound in this bag.
You can also make the strap as long or a short as you like. It make a really nice across the body bag.
Thanks Jen for having me as your tester. I'll enjoy using this bag.
