Well, it's been a project full of blood, sweat and tears, literally!
Blood: Pricked my fingers, arms and even my face on the multitude of pins sticking out from the edge of the bag! Ouch!
Sweat: It's hot sitting at that table, working hard, especially when the heating comes on! And the straighteners only added to the heat!
Tears: I have never had the thread break so many times in one project - ever! It was ridiculous! By the 'finishing touches', I was ready to give up and resign this to an incomplete pile - but it would be alone on that pile, as I've never not finished anything, no matter how frustrating! And I think I shed a tear of joy when I signed the label!
So, we got there in the end and it is indeed finished! Here are some finished shots
I do love this bag and may have to make more in the future!
Total hours: About 8, I think
Cost: £58 plus labour (of love!)
