I thought I’d delay the suspense no longer and show you what I’ve been working on the past few weeks.
I’ve decided to sell a few things in my sister’s hair/beauty salon in the run up to Christmas.  First up is ‘Modern Maud’:

zippered inner pocket
Maud was the name of my Grandmother, whose cast iron treadle Singer got me started sewing as a child (I didn’t use an electric machine until I was 30!).
So I thought it fitting to name a bag after her.  I made this pattern last year, but have added a few wee extras, like a zippered pocket in the blue cord version, reinforced handles & base.
I’ve used some IKEA fabrics in these new bags, as well as wadding & some recycled materials (you know me!).  These 2 bags are spacious and sturdy and would make great shopping or book bags.
Hope you like them, and more importantly, I hope they sell!  

Next instalment of ‘Introducing …’ tomorrow.  Have a wonderful start to your week.
