I'd bought this top from my local charity shop for 50p, but unfortunately it was a touch too tight for me. My daughter had suggested making a cushion cover with it, but none of our cushions were small enough.
I decided to turn it into a drawstring bag (10 x 14ins) after successfully making a really cute smaller one (4 x 4in). The joys of having a working sewing machine. Well, when I say 'working', what I really mean is that as long as you don't sew too fast the thread won't break.
I still need to fiddle around with it a little more and hopefully I can get it completely sorted. As much as I love to sew by hand having a 'semi' working sewing machine has made a huge difference and allows me to be a little more creative.
I'm very pleased with my little bag and looking forward to making loads more. Perfect little gift!
I've had a fantastic six week break from work and now I must switch my brain back into work mode.
It's going to be hard having to crawl out of my lovely bed really early, but it has to be done.
