A couple of weeks ago I had a fun project. A friend from London came visiting, and on Monday we went to Klässbols linen weavery. Great fun, and the looms were running. Those things have an amazing rhythm! I was walking around totally absorbed by the sound, hearing all kinds of music. In the shop we found a lovely 2nd grade table runner. I have no idea what was wrong with it, maybe the width was wrong or something. Very graphic and great start for a bag. As it was a 2nd, it was pretty cheap.
During the week, in between shopping and chats and walks and meals and concerts I constructed a bag. That is, thought it out, and made all the parts.
Sunday morning this is what I had.
Here it’s coming together. I made a key ring to attach to the key fob.
My Bernina is amazing! She chugged through all these layers without complaining.
No pics from the final construction, but here is the final result on the recipient’s shoulder. With leather straps hand sewn in place. I’m quite happy with the result, I might just have to make more…
In the two weeks that have passed since the bag was finished it has got a lot of wear, and I’m happy to say that the recipient is rather pleased with it. All the pockets and the amount of structure incorporated makes a very useful and easily organised bag. Woot! I’m chuffed to bits.
I need a new trip to Klässbols, I think.
