I finally decided to treat myself to something nice and went straight to Sew La La to buy some fabrics I'd spent so long drooling over.
As my order completed I felt so excited and couldn't wait to get stated on some sewing. I jotted down some notes and sketches of what I'd like to make so when my parcel arrived I could get started.
I was really impressed with the fast delivery. I received it next day and was packaged really well.
Here are a few pictures of what I received
I love the patchwork fabric and wanted to make a pretty makeup bag for myself. A while ago I bought a Catg Kidston brush roll, so I really wanted a make up bag that was big enough to store it in as well as my every day essentials.
I quilted the patchwork fabric, added.a zip and some polka dot lining and ended up with this
I like the ric rac trim and the button was part of a set that my sister bought me from America.
Whilst I was at my sewing machine I also had time to make a cover for my notebook. It's A5 size and will brighten up my sewing desk.
