Testing testing 123

I was lucky enough to be given the task of testing out a new pattern for Nikki this week.

It's a sweet little barrel purse using a 90mm purse frame. I even managed to sew around the curve without too many difficulties after getting a bit of practice with the baguette bag.

I used the lovely floral fabric that I received from Amy last week, and teamed it with some contrasting pink polkadots. The instructions were really easy to follow and there were lots of photos for guidance. Now, all I need to do is fill it with money and go shopping.

I think I should be making a start on these very soon for the Christmas list!

Ann Marie has been testing too....

It's easy to see why Nikki got you to test her pattern. You've done a great job. And nice choice of fabric.

Good luck with the money filling and shopping plans!
