A Bag

Hello Blogger friends and visitors,

I have done a lot of stitching  this week but  have little to show as most of the work is for gifts but I can show this little bag I made.

I just happened to pass our local needlework shop and of course had to pop in and say hello and that was when I spied this lovely fabric and knew exactly what I wanted to make with it.

I had problems taking the photos as we had dull dark weather during the week, the above photo shows the more exact colours and the below photos rather too pale.

Elena´s tutorial for a manicure bag can be found here and although I doubt that I shall use the bag as such, it will certainly come in handy for something or other as there is plenty of room to hold a lot of things. A large pocket with a zip at one end.

and three smaller pockets at the other end.

apart from the lined drawstring bag.

which I had to make smaller as I didn´t have enough fabric.  I don´t think it looks too bad.

A Lovely Gift

I had a surprise arrive in the post this week.  During the Pincushion Parade celebrated recently, Rosey at Ishkabibble mentioned that she hadn´t got any pincushions at all and as we certainly can´t have that, I sent her one of mine and look at this pretty book mark that she sent me in return.

Isn´t it pretty?  Isn´t she clever? Thank you very much Rosey, I enjoy reading and it will be very useful.

See you next week when the Smalls SAL check-in is due.... doesn´t the time just flash by?


  1. Your bag turned out so nice! Thank you for including the link to instructions.

  2. Wonderful.
    A very nice little bag, I like it very well.
    Greetings Martina

  3. Your bag is very pretty, Sheryl!! Lovely gift from Rosey!

  4. What a wonderful bag! That fabric is very nice, it reminds me of the beautiful old percale sheets that used to exist. The manicure bag looks like it could also be used for little crafting items.

    I am glad you like the little bookmark! One can never have enough, and even if you do have enough, somehow little scraps of paper find themselves as bookmarks! :)

  5. What a beautiful little bag Sheryl and a beautiful bookmark gift too! Enjoy your weekend! Christine x

  6. I love your little bag, the fabrics are SO nice and seeing the bag inside was a surprise. Beautiful bookmark from Rosey - those little fans are lovely.

  7. What a great job you did on that bag. So pretty and will come in very handy. Nice bookmark..Crocheted bookmarks are so elegant!

    Once more I have to admire your creative sewing skills. I love the bag you made with all the different pockets inside to store lots of things in them. And the fabric you used is wonderful. A gorgeous project.

  11. Oh I love that bag! It's high on my list of things to make for me now. Your version is beautiful and it doesn't notice at all that your drawstring bag is smaller. What a lovely gift from Rosey. xx
