Took me ages to cut the fabric for my new one. Love the fabric sooo much it was a hard decision deciding whether to use it and cut into it!! Eventually felt it was a waste for the material to stay hidden away in a drawer and I should use it and appreciate it every day (also I seriously need to use my fabric stash as it’s growing instead of decreasing – it’s becoming more difficult to hide!)
The pattern I’m using is from an old stitch magazine – Sew Hip. I change it slightly by adding a lining as I think it gives the bag more structure and looks more expensive.
Use and enjoy things that make you feel good and happy – it’s good for your mental health and shows how much you care and value yourself 🙂
