As well as making Maille the zipped purse thingy as a present I also made this one from some 50s atomic 'Hourglass' fabric (left over from my lampshade making before Christmas). Some fabrics are just so lovely I could eat them (do not try this at home).
However I did not eat this fabric but continued making things with it. As before I like how bottoms and zip
The little vase thingy is in reality a vinegar bottle (I carefully put the stopper for it somewhere several years ago - it will turn up again eventually). The dried allium came from the garden about 5 years ago and apart from gentle shaking to remove dust keeps just fine!
I finished sewing at about 23.20 last night - some people go out and some watch the telly..
PS: Please let me know if this blog is of any interest to the greater world - I am thinking of converting my blog to a log and keep it on my computer. I fear that I am speaking mainly to myself, Mary and Elaine, and maybe one or two others. Not to worry as I frequently have very long conversations with myself. A log, not a blog, may be the better place for me to plough my furrow (this is a phrase that I often use with the children - never make judgements about others because all of us in life are trying 'to plough our furrow'...they just roll their eyes and throw in a 'good grief' for good measure...). I like ploughing my furrow. As ever no one understands what the heck I am going on about but myself!
