Yesterday I broke the rule. The one about not starting Shiny New Projects until you’ve finished at least three…but rules are meant to be broken, yes?
Paul asked for a bag for his new birthday present. He said he wouldn’t mind a drawstring bag, but as he picked out this rather fabulous tie-dyed denim, I thought it may be a bit stiff for pulling a drawstring tight. So off into zipland we went, and I lined it with white cotton too.
Now, if you’re going to make one bag, you’re probably going to wish you’d done a second one to carry around that lovely hardback book on photography, too.
This is what he’ll keep in his bag. Lovely new tai chi shoes, just in time for the championships.
I’ll admit to a moment’s panic when I handed it over – oh, please tell me it came out the right size!
There are a few other things in the pipeline, if you’d like to follow what else I’m making you’ll find me posting work in progress at
See you there 🙂
