The 4 fold up bags were a hit for the recipients over Christmas. They seemed quite excited over something so ordinary! So that was good of course! Plus I had matched the fabric up to the people really, you know, what suited each person & I think I did a good job of picking that too.
I had cut out a couple of others on Monday but hadn't stressed about getting them sewn up yet. My sister & her partner were both impressed with them so I said I would finish off the others for them. So Boxing Day I sewed. Not a big job at least. They really are quick to sew. I haven't been able to time it as I get constantly interrupted so if I ever got a chance to just sew one from start to finish I think maybe about 45 minutes tops! So anyway, Judy & Jana were able to go home with their Mandy made fold away shopping bags. Phew... & that's another thing off my sewing table. I really didn't want to leave them sitting there partly done. Oh & bonus again - more fabric stashed used! Yay! I am thinking I still have a particular fabric I love in one of my boxes that I need to dig out to make one of these bags for me. I have used some of it, but think there might be some left... fingers crossed.
I really need to sort the stuff sitting in the way before I do much else. Might make that today's project.
