Christmas is coming, now now now. The frightening onward march of time that leads inexorably to actually having to sort out gifts for like, everyone, at Christmas, is NOW.
So I've made a few gifts with fabric, paint & lace applique which should cover most of the girl portion of my gift list, PHEW.
So as far as Christmas DIY's go, this one is acceptably anti-horrid (seriously, what is WITH that red & green?? It's just weird.) and most importantly, cheap. Granny Corner approves of cheap. Also jewellery, GC really, really believes in that.
So I need a new handy bag, for the carrying around of my laptop. And I have taken a fancy to one in the style of a "well-known-fashion-house". Of course I'm going to make it myself! Sheesh! But I'll do mine the artworker way: labour intensive custom stencil pattern & embroidery, yay. And that's before I even make the bag!
It's a very simple design and I'm most certainly not the first woman to hanker after one of
