A productive Sunday

This Sunday started early.. more or less been up since around 4 am, but I've experienced before that I work well when over-tired.


I began taking the drawer with my Halloween and black based fabrics out from my handy dresser (IKEA, gotta love it). I've collected Halloween fabrics for about.. oh, I don't know.. 10 years? now, but rarely use any of it. How unusual. ;p

I spent a good two hours selecting, cutting and sewing, until I ended up with this;


This is the top - or outside part - of a bag. I found the pattern in a book - and I've been drooling over the idea to make one to use at work, and finally had the time and the inspiration to sit down and start. The wide black part is the bottom of the bag, and the squares are the front and back. I knew I didn't have enough of the eyelash-fabric when I started to cut, so I changed the bottom to a pure black fabric, and exchanged one of the stripes (the middle horizontal one) with a black fabric decorated with a shiney, metallic firework print.

I have to wait a few days until I can continue. I couldn't find a thread I liked in town yesterday, so my mom sent me a couple in the mail today. Plus I need to plan the inside. I like to have many pockets - for my wallet, keys, cellphone, a pen or two, and other things - and I still haven't decided what color to use.

My back is not happy after spending almost 4 hours in the kitchen (better light and space to sew)..

Så gøy å få kommentar fra deg på min blogg. Nå har jeg lagt deg inn på bloglines og vil ta en nærmere kikk på din blogg om noen dager. Akkurat nå er jeg i Oslo på besøk hos kjæresten min. Jeg så snømannen du hadde laget. Det er faktisk mitt design :) Jeg måtte svare deg her på kommentaren for du kommer opp som "no reply".

May Britt;

Tror jeg fant det ut nå. :) Takker for tipset. Ikke brukt denne typen blog-setup på en god stund, så tar litt tid å komme inn i ting igjen.
