Sewing for myself - for a change.

I'm feeling very excited about having a comment on one of my posts - the first! As a beginner in the blogging world, I'm still finding my way so it's encouraging to know that there are some people who have actually looked at my blogs. Still no success with posting photos but I'll get there!

The Great Golfer is out on the golf course in the rain and I've been sewing - need I say more? I have actually made a bag for myself in preparation for flying to Italy soon. I hope I've now included all the features I might need in a bag to use when I fly: an adjustable strap that goes across the body or can be shortened to go over the shoulder; a magnetic snap for ease of opening and closing; an external back pocket to hold a boarding pass and passport until safely in the plane; a couple of internal pockets; an internal snap hook with a coin purse attached for foreign cash; enough room inside for my puzzle book, a book to read, tissues, hand gel and dark glasses. I've flown many times so by now I should know what I need and want! The bag is also nice a light so it won't weigh me down before I even load it with all my goodies.

Now I'm off to make some bunting for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations this coming weekend. I've made many meters for the village community cafe but this lot will be for our house.


  1. Well done Margaret! I have no idea of what I am doing but I hope you see this. I am proud of you!! Where do I find your pattern and picture of your bag? Love, Glynis

  2. Hi Margaret,

    I wish I was going to Italy as well - lucky you! The bag that you're sewing would be perfect for your travel with all the compartments. I hope you can post a photo of it so we can see it.


    1. Hi Virna

      I've managed a couple of photos. I put them in a separate blog today.

      Best wishes
