Bloody Bag!

Curses! Curses! Curses! Bloody bag! Actually curses to me for cutting it so fine. Making this bag has taught me a lesson! Some ideas can be saved for another day but on this occasion, I acted on it and nearly

Snappy Cardholders

Just like Scrooge McDuck, I went to check my stash the other day. Unfortunately it’s not money but rather my stash of fabrics and leather. I have a little corner in the attic where all the fabrics are neatly stored

The Handbag

When anyone clears out their fabric cupboard, I am more than happy to be on the receiving end. This happened recently, when I received some pieces of leather that had to be used up or thrown out. I’d always thought

The Wool Bag

About a year ago, I bought this really thick wool fabric from the internet. When it arrived, I realised it looked more like upholstery fabric rather than fashion fabric so I tucked it in a box underneath the staircase, where

I made another pattern for a leather bag and this time, I experimented with a stiffer leather and an over lapped stitch. I have also remembered to document the process including the pattern making. With the pattern, I decided to
