I’ve just realised that I have been a little quiet on the blog over the last week or so. I’ve actually been overwhelmed with projects, and I have been quite busy trying to get things finished.
A few weeks ago I borrowed Lola Nova’s book from the library. This isn’t a sponsored post…I’ve included a link for if anyone wants to look at it! It has some great projects in it and has a bit of a bohemian feel to it. Lovely photography and fabrics. I used one of the projects in the book as inspiration for my patchwork bathmat. There was also a couple of bag projects that I wanted to have a go at.
I needed a bag to take to the library, to hold any books or DVD’s that we are checking out or returning. At the moment, I am using a foldaway bag from H&M. The pouch for the bag is quite modern and has a geometric print on it. However, the actual bag is just a thin black polyester. Adam says that it is ugly and he sighs every time I use it! The Vagabond bag in the Lola Nova book seems like a perfect bag for library visits. The only thing that put me off was the bias binding; I declared my hate for it here, but I was prepared to give it another go.
