Pleated Bag

Once again, thanks to everyone who took part in the giveaway (Jennifer, I can't get your email through your profile so please send me an email with it. Thanks!)

It was a good weekend for me to have the giveaway as I was quite ill so it was good not to feel under pressure to post a new blog every day - there is no written rule about this, I just put the pressure on myself!

I did get a chance to do a little bit of sewing. I'd bought some bag handles from U-Handbag a few months ago for making bags for my bridesmaids for the wedding. I got 3 in total so I decided to make the pattern from their blog that goes with that particular bag handle.

It turned out quite nice in the end but was a bit difficult to sew. Not difficult in terms of technicality but just in thickness. I would imagine that the fabric I used was a good bit thicker than the one they use and I managed to break one needle in my sewing maching and one hand-sewing needle - not good!

I'm also not so much in love with the actual pattern now. I like these photos but in real life I think the bag looks too small for the handles.

It will make a nice present though. It's C's mother's birthday next week so I think I may give this to her - she will be 70.
