It's been such a long while since I've posted that it's kind of hard to get back into the habit now but I've missed all of you and your words of encouragement.
So much has been going on from sewing as a business which has been hard work but fun at the same time to having to leave it all behind to visit my dad in Spain who was ill, I was away for a month and a half and managed to spend the first two weeks of that time with my dad before he passed away. Now back home it's time to catch up again and start to pick up from where I left off but first of all I want to say a big thank you to all of you that wrote to me and gave your support while I was away. You are amazing people who have made this tough time so much easier to get through.
So now what to show you. I really don't know where to start as I've made so many things and to be honest my photos are all jumbled up. I managed to put together a collage of all the Open wide Zippered Pouch's I've made since just before March and I was surprised at how many there were. These were made using a free tutorial by Noodlehead which you can find HERE.
I also made quite a few Fallon Bags designed by Karis at CloBird Designs. The pattern has a zipper closure but I simplified it and left it out. You can also make it with a zipper pocket but again for speed and simplicity I made a couple of slip pockets.
This is a very easy bag to make and also very versatile which you can adapt to suit your needs, the pattern also has instructions for two sizes and two strap options and you can buy it from Craftsy HERE.
I also made some test bags before I went to Spain so will have to search for the photos and show you those. Hope you'll stick around now I'm back.
