Project Bag.....


I've had quite a bit of secret sewing to do recently.....

My friend Lyn had a birthday - we sew together regularly and she always comes with heaps of paraphenalia so I thought a large project bag would be useful...

I also wanted to do some of my fun quilting on a vintage doily....



... so I did.... in addition to  a sweet stitchery in the middle (slightly adapted design by Anni Downs to make it fit into the centre)


It's quite a big bag with a boxed bottom ....


The pink is all quilted to give it some firmness... and so is this large pocket I added on the back....


lined with pockets on both sides for all those dohickeys we need when we sew and a little clasp dohickey to put your keys so they are easy to find when it's time to go home!!!

Lyn loves pink and birds so this fabric I thought was perfect....


A fun project to make ... and hopefully one that will survive many years of service....


Happy significant birthday Lyn.....  such a good friend...

Righto, Gotto Go..... quilting today!!
