Inspired to Sew!

After reading both of my favourite mags recently - Country Style and the Notebook it is no wonder that i was inspired to make a bag. Kath Kidston certainly has some great patterns and i just love her floral fabrics she uses. This bag is a slight modification from a bag in Amanda Blake Soule's book "Handmade Home" - only a little larger and with a button.

Must have been feeling very domestic... time for an apron.. yes i am doing lots of cooking now with three kiddies. You can never really have too many aprons?

Just a little doodling.....................

Hope you are inspired to sew too.

  7. Hi Elizabeth,
    Thanks for visiting my blog.
    I agree - no-one can ever have too many aprons !! I love them, so much so that my kitchen door can hardly move as they all hang off the door handle!
