bag lady!...

Updated: Aug 25, 2019



Hi Huns...

And viola...5 meters of fabric and 3 looks later....Not bad aye!...Even if i do say so myself!...

Well every seamstress knows its not as simple as "viola!" and buoy i wish it was sometimes...But on the other hand, i wouldn't change it for a thing...So a brief interlude on how i got my hands on this lovely fabric...Exactly 4 weeks today a lovely lady called Vicki from the Minerva Crafts approached myself with a great opportunity to collaborate with them...and of course i was biting her hands off...I jumped at the offer...

You know the post about the stripe fabric...Well this is in reference to that...So i was given a selection of gorgeous fabric to choose from but i didn't wanna be greedy...Out of all the fabrics i was drawling over I settled with the one, which was the stripe fabric...Great choice...It's as gorgeous as described...I was certainly NOT! disappointed when it arrived...Soft, Lightweight, Great quality and a beautiful handle...Easy to work with...
