I bought a copy of this super fun book the other day and found (among it's great patterns) something perfect to make this week. A laptop bag. Not a boring ordinary one, either. It's pretty and was fun and easy to make. You should make one too, friends. Your laptop is sad without a pretty bag to ride in.
I think I will make more things from book. It's good for using up bits and pieces that are not enough for something on thier own, but enough for embellishing and that's what this book is all about. Sewing useful things and making them unique. I managed to make this entire bag out of things I had in my sewing closet. It's fun to see what I can whip up for no cost. Well, except the cost of the book but that's minimal considering how many nice projects are in it.
I spent some time yesterday afternoon doing the hand embroiderey. It's time consuming but well worth it.
