My creative space

I'm currently testing out the revised instructions for the Day Bag for Nikki..... so this is my second zippered pocket - woohoo!

I've finished the outer of the bag - I decided to add the optional front flap.

.... and I was lucky enough to watch, and learn all about making structured bag bases, and using purse feet, while Nikki was making her fabulous video tutorial yesterday.

If you watch closely, my bag makes a guest appearance right at the end!

I'd better pack up all of my bag bits and pieces and take them along to Sewjourn to finish off.

Also arriving in my creative space this week - a fabulous crocheted tablecloth from Tania at Myrtle and Eunice - there are hundreds of beautiful circles to play with....yippee!

Thanks Tania

It looks great Cam. Just gorgeous.

Love the look of that table cloth. I can see it working well as a stencil!!! Which reminds me, can you bring the Stencil 101 book to Sewjourn so I can have a gander.
