One Thing, One Week Challenge

10 Jul

Last week I signed up to Amy’s challenge, obviously I was tired at the time of signing up because I said that there were 2 things I wanted to get done this week – surely the title of the challenge is a clue to how many there should be.  Anyway it did mean that I had an option as to what project to work on!

Amy's Creative Side

So Leah’s curtains for her den have yet again not been touched.  But the pattern review that I’m working on for Trish has been tackled.

Trish send me a pattern for the Hazel Hipster pattern.  The pattern comes in 2 styles and 2 sizes, I opted to make the ‘mini’ for Bethan. She picked out the fabrics and we had to negotiate based on how much of each print we had but I think she was happy with the outcome.

So I put the bag exterior and interior together and then realised that the bag was going to be bigger than I had anticipated so thought that I would add an adjustable strap.  I ordered hardware for that and waited…it arrived this morning so I quickly got on and finished the bag ready for a photoshoot.

I will be writing a full pattern review, come back next week for that and a giveaway, Trish has very kindly offered one reader the chance to win 2 of her wonderful patterns so stay tuned…

I’m linking this up with:

Sew Sweetness

If you missed this party go back and have a look, there are lots of fantastic purse/bag pattern reviews with lots of different interpretations of the patterns – it really is useful especially if you’re new to bag making.

Also linking up with Heather and Megan for Fabric Tuesday, you can link up too if you’ve made something with fabric in the last week, go on over and see what others have been doing.

  1. I like your choice of fabrics. It inspires me to sew a new bag. I have been carrying mine for at least 2 years :^(
