Handy pocket too
Ready to go
Continuing my bag creation phase, I have sewn up some fold up shopping bags. Folded they are approximately 4 x 8 inches, unfolded 18 x 19.5 inches. Just right to pop in the car, bike pannier or handbag. Always be ready for the shop stop and be environmentally friendly too.
For the past two weeks I have been sweating in my little garret room designing and sewing spec cases! Oh my goodness I hear you groan, poor thing she needs a life! Well I am a bit picky and get so enthused in my own little world that little things like this take over. That’s the beauty of retirement, you can work on what ever you like as long as you get satisfaction.
I am at the satisfaction stage right now and my little Etsy shop may have some new goodies soon if I can get the finished articles done now.
Here are some pics showing the morph from original to (nearly) finished spectacle case. Now do you call them glasses cases, spectacle cases or reading glass cases?
Happy with the basics, now to choose fabrics and practice writing with a sewing machine!
I have been guided by my “business manager” that modern men don’t use such fripperies as these, so I am going to offer them only to us fairer sex and personalise them with name or initials if it is desired.
Back to the garret then and see you soon. Happy sewing everyone.
