Don't Shoot The Messenger!

Bee Blessed was due to meet this Saturday, but I’ve had to cancel it due to a contentious paramilitary parade happening in our area. Boo!

It’s been a few weeks now since we’ve got together, and we were looking forward to catching up and progressing the many quilts we have on the go! 

We’ve rescheduled BB for next Saturday.  Hopefully, the parade will pass over peacefully!

On the theme of messengers, I can show you the messenger bag I’ve made this week!

Following on from this one I made for my niece, I decided to make one for myself, but also to develop it as a potential future class.

I added a zippered pocket in the flap – when I pitch up to class with my arms loaded with stuff, I need a handy, easy access pocket for my classroom keys.  I’m planning to make a cute zipper pull for it!

I have some lush linen pulled to make a 2nd one, when I get some zips to match!  Here’s an idea of the scale of the bag (approx. 14″ x 13″ x 3″):

That poke at the bottom disappears when the bag is filled with my rubbish belongings!

My new bag got its first test drive today and it didn’t disappoint!

I’ve also managed to turn my Low Volume Charm Squares into something!

But more on that another day!

Happy Friday!
