Keeping up the tradition of doing a million things at once I have started work on a patchwork bag.
My mum bought the kit for me as a Christmas present at the Knitting & Stitching Show and I was itching to get started as soon as I got back to Leeds and had my sewing machine set up.
Good job I bought a rotary cutter and ruler as there was a lot of cutting and I had to be quite precise!
This is the front all pieced together ...
And here is the back ...
I'm quite pleased so far, despite it being a little wonky. It was quite tricky to put together but there were no major incidents and I still have all my digits attached even after extensive use of the rotary cutter!
Next up I have to start quilting it and making the flap, which involves some machine applique.
