Old Bag

Very successful workshop today.  Sandra, the lady in the title, taught us how to make two bags.  We started with the first, and slightly more difficult (-the workshop was aimed at beginner's so they were actually both very easy, it's just that this one is lined) - which was described as 'tweedy'.  Last summer a really friendly couple from Australia, visiting family in England, stayed on the CL, and the Sheila joined us at Pitch and Stitch.  She called in another time (for the life of me I can't remember her name which isn't very nice but she was great fun) with a pile of Harris Tweed samples she had been given but couldn't take back to Australia and gave them to Sandra and me.  I decided to sew a few of them together to make my bag:

I am really pleased with it.  Anne and Sandra also made a 'shopper' but I was determined to end the day with a completely finished article, so I kept on with this.  I am going to make a shopper too - not out of tweed - now I know how, but not today!
