Bags of, well, bags
All weekend, whenever I could, I proudly wore the new handbag I made on Friday. It took me so many makings and undoings to get right, but it works a treat, and the fact that I managed to work out how to put in a zipped lining (without instructions!) still gives me a major thrill.
I’ve got a couple of things I’d like to iron out with this design – called the Bus Conductor – then I’ll start putting them into my shop.
It’s Admin Day here today, so it’s all about waiting for couriers, sorting tax, answering emails and blah blah blah. But what I’d truly love to be doing is getting back to my studio to make another bag – can’t wait to see how they turn out in other fabrics.
And in other bags news, last week I delivered an order of 20 bags in a different style which I’ve named the Alexander Sack. It’s a great big carrying bag, , and they turned out beautifully, but are maybe a bit expensive to make from the Sevilla Rock upholstery-weight cotton. I’m going to try them out in calico and see how those work instead.
