Don't Like To Rush Things

Well it's only taken me about 5 years to get around to making this bag. First I got the remnant of white material from fabric warehouse 5 years ago and then on my first trip to Sewing for Pleasure at the NEC I fell in love with this huge cerise pink button. I cant tell you how many times I looked at that button in my button tin but couldn't bring myself to use it but a couple of nights ago I thought that's it, I can't keep keeping all this lovely stash just to look at, it defeats the object, so out came the scissors and within a couple of hours I had a new beach bag (I did think of selling it on Folksy but just couldn't part with it). We're off to Spain again in a couple of weeks so I will use it then.








Yesterday I popped to one of my favourite fabric shops, House of Sanderson, in Brierley Hill, they sell the most gorgeous curtain fabric, and a small selection of dress fabric at the best prices I have ever seen, remnants are just £1 per metre. Well I couldn't resist, I spent under £10 and look what I got. The green floral is my favourite, (feel another bag coming on!) and the one with the fruit on. I could have brought more but had to resist, the ceiling will fall down with the weight of all the material I've got up there waiting to use.

Love the bag - and that button is wonderful. I'm afraid I do have a weakness for buttons.
