Bag Swap – It has been received!


Hello everybody! =)

After being absent from my blog writing for quite some time now, finally something new from me. All my time has been taken up by uni work and my master thesis over the last few months.

So you’ll have to excuse my being late to show you the bag I made for my swap partner Katherine in the process of the Bag-A-Holic Autumn Swap.

Remember the very cute bag she send me? Just a quick reminder here.

And here you can find a very kind post she wrote about my bag on her blog. =)

And here it is, my creation for the bag swap:

I made this bag following a pattern from my favourite bag-related resource – U-Handbag. It is Lisa’s Expandable Pack It In Tote pattern. A great pattern to follow! And even though it used a lot of techniques that were new to me it worked out great! I’ll definitely be making it again – I’ve already had a few requests… 😉

The fabric I used is from my all-time favourite fabric store, sadly located as far away as Stockholm: Ohlssons.

I’m Back!

Finally my exams are all over and all there’s left to do for this semester is to wait for the grades.

I’ve now got 4 weeks of holidays and I am going to make the best of it – a trip to Vienna and another trip to Stockholm are planned. I’ve never been to Stockholm so I’m very excited. And in the true crafter’s spirit I’ve already googled “fabric stores Stockholm” and found quite a neat little list.

And I’ve also got a lot of sewing projects lined up. First of all, I’ll finish my first Frenchy Shoulder Bag, following a pattern by Amy Butler. Then, there’s the very cute Fortune Cookie Clutch by the great U-Handbag (love this shop – they’ve got great bag-making supplies with even better prices!). And I’ve got a few orders from friends stocking up – a few messenger bags and a custom-made bag. So, I’ll be quite busy 😉
