After sweet Lala inspired me to try the fat quarter bags on Sew Mama Sew I kept on with them. And decided that the first bag I had made, which was intended as a gift for Lala, was just not good enough. So today I unpicked it and remade it. I’m enamoured of the pleated version of the bag, but I’m just struggling to get those pleats right. So (sorry Lala) it’s not perfect, but it’s a lot cuter than it was. I think so anyway. Soon it’ll be winging its way to Cape Town filled with all sorts of goodies…

After reading my previous post on the great bag tutorials on Sew Mama Sew, my friend Lala went browsing, and soon declared an urgent need for one of Jennifer’s lovely Fat Quarter Bags. Since Lala has fear of sewing machine, and since I love her so, I whipped one up for her from a pretty retro-60s style fabric I had lying about. It’s rather pink, but I think it will do for morning tea and afternoon cocktails. Now to package it up and send it on down to Cape Town.
