Bag - finished

How long is it since Christmas? What will you think of me if I tell you I finished my BF’s Christmas present tonight? Well, it’s true…

I had planned to make her a bag and a mobile phone holder for Christmas, I had made a bag for myself and another friend, and she said “I want one of those as well”, so I thought I’d better make her one. And I was making mobile phone holders for a lot of people – all different. But when it was time to send the presents to England, it was only the mobile phone holders I had made for her and her boyfriend was finished. So I wrote her a note on the card saying I would send the remainder of her gift just over New Year. Guess what; she and her boyfriend is coming tomorrow to visit for the weekend :o) Have I been sewing this evening? Yes! And now it’s done! And I hope she will be pleased with it.


There is a blue stripe parallel with the purple one, but you can’t see it when the lid is closed. This is my version of Norwegian designer AnnAKa’s bag “Gladveska” (The happy bag); if you check out the link you can see my alterations. Sorry, but I don’t have a pic of the mobile phone holders, but I posted one I made for another friend in February. For my BF I made it with the blue and purple focus fabrics I have used in the bag, and for her boyfriend I used the same blue and another blue, and embelished them both using embroydery thread.

Well, it is time for bed, it has been a good evening of sewing for me! And I hope it has been a good evening for you to!
Sincerely, Anne

On the other hand, I know about the-not-finishing kind-of-thing.. My Amy Butler Weekend bag from a Workshop in May last year is still waiting... Maybe this May...

Have a great Weekend with your freinds.. B-)
