Tammy bag, bloghop, its my day :-)

Hello everybody....

BLOG HOP today!!!


Sorry for publishing a little early, but I need to sit on a bus later to day, and I don't know if the Wireless will be up. My car broke down.... :-(, and I must bee in Oslo this evening.
From the beginning I was not supposed to participate in this hop, but luckily enough I made it. :-)

Thanks to Mdm Samm for  making this pattern and arrange this hop.  This time she also is  our cheer leader.  :-) !!!

To make this bag we also needed a handle, and I was afraid that it would be a problem, but it was easily solved....
I got some of my leftover fabric from the last blog hop, "Say it with Flowers", and used a lining that was in my box for bits and pieces.



The pattern was easy to follow, and now to the big excitement, the Handle.....

I had some small problems because the frame in the original pattern was more square, and this one a little more rounded on the edges, and  I needed to adjust as I went along. I ended up with a small bit on the sides that didn't fit into the frames. I  just stitched them together by hand, from the inside of the purse, as you might be able to see from the picture. 


And then I got the idea to make a small pincushion as well. I took a CD as pattern, and cut out 2 pieces of fabric.
Then I made a line in the middle dividing the circle into 4 sections. Sewing at 1/4 inch on both sides, on the first line, and cutting on the line.  Take the new pieces  and put right sides together again and do the other line.


Your fabric will look like this. Adjust the circle, and sew with the right sides together. If you like to have a small loop as I put into it, do that before you sew them together.
Turn it inside out, fill it and sew the opening by hand. 


The finished result. :-)







Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today.  :-)

  54. Hej Ingrid
    Tack för din titt på min sida. Nu har jag suttit gott o väl en halvtimme och njutit av din sida. Åh vad fina saker du gjort. Jag är mycket imponerad.
    Och den här börsen är så fin med perfekt tygval. Ett sådant tyg skulle jag gå förbi i affären. "Alldeles för rosa och romantiskt". Men det blir ju helt annorlunda när det är sytt av det, då ser jag att jag visst borde ha valt ett sådant tyg.
