The wifi is not working properly since last week. I think due to the stormy weather. I've been quite busy finishing few orders and also managed to finish my tester bag for Namrata's newly released pattern. I told her, I won't be able to test in the beginning, but I managed to finish my Etsy orders in time and got 2 days before the due date.
And here is my take on the pattern:
I love making a small bag and have been asking Namrata to make the pattern and I love how she improvised it from the original design. The smart zippered flap is my favorite.
I made a reversed version from what the pattern called. I used solid linen for the main body and accented with floral linen just because I want the flap in floral ^^.
This bag surprisingly quite spacious. Besides the zippered flap, it has a slip pocket which I find it very handy. I also used a cute snap button I got from my recent trip to Japan.
Since the time was short, I decided to use the ready-made leather strap I got from Indonesia.
I've been using this bag a lot and it fits in my wallet, phone and a little notebook that I always carry. I think I will be adding this bag to the shop after I come back from the holiday next August.
Meanwhile, I have a couple of projects I have to complete before I go for the holiday. Making list helps me to focus. And here's this week list :
1. Finish and send out the London Passport Holder.
3. Fabric Pull for The Artisan Corina Quilt Swap - I'm late :(
4. Shop for gifts and souvenirs - this gotta be fun !!
Those I wanted to complete this week. I hope I can finish it !! Ganbatte!! :D
That's all for today, let's go back to the sewing machine now :)
