I have finally joined the squares together, so now have two sides for the Larger Than Life bag. The sides and bottom gusset are in progress. I was a bit naughty and rather than blocking properly I just steam ironed the sides – gulp! Very lazy, but I figured that once the entire bag is constructed it will all fit together nicely. Here are photos of each side:
My aim for the next few weeks is to finish off incomplete projects before starting something new. Well, it’s good to have an aim . . . I wonder if this one is realistic? That means that I have to finish these:
* Larger Than Life bag
* pram rug
* embroidered dress for Stella
* embroidered dress for Clare
* blouse for me
* and I suspect that there are a few other incomplete sewing projects somewhere hiding in the cupboards.
By the way, my sister-in-law really liked her slouch bag!
