|Pins! A world filled with pins - and small pains,|
because I just keep on pinning and pricking myself...
One pattern I'll readily admit to have used is the Derek bag pattern. Another is the Back-to-school lunch bag.
Otherwise, the deal is pretty simple. All it takes is:
- a (working...) sewing machine
- scrap cotton fabrics, bought cheaply, from IKEA
- I've been using 1 (Elisabet) and 2 (Ditte; white and yellow) for the outer layers and 3 (Bomull) for the lining
- coffee packages (thick, printed aluminum foil that doesn't tear easily)
- ribbons, zippers, other embellishments....

The fabric is a rest fabric I inherited from my paternal grandmother Laura's stash.
|Inspired by the Derek bag, this one has a logo from one of my old T-shirts.|
One I printed on it myself, and couldn't bear to throw away
when the T-shirt was turned into scrap cloth.
