Hi, my name is Catherine and im addicted to sewing...

I have been a busy girl again this week. Back before Christmas I promised Sam and Nattie some bags which they wanted to be the same style as my Oriental Bag. Well I finally got round to it this week!

The original (very well used) bag with the two pretty pink new ones
As always the first one took me forever and the second one only took a day. I am pretty happy with them on the whole. I used pollycotton for the lining and in hindsight I probably should have used full weight cotton but it has still worked well.

I really enjoyed making these once I got into it (so if you want one let me know and ill price it up!). However, the more sewing I do the more I remember that I am going to have to give Mum's sewing machine back at some point which inspired me to scour the market... and I have fallen in love with this one...

Pfaff Ambition 1.5

It's a lot of money, so i'm not investing right this minute but I certainly think this machine is the way forward! I also think it's about time I move on to trying to sell some of my creations - mainly to fund my rather expensive obsession and so I can pay for my new toy! There's only so many things I can make for myself or force onto my loved ones so making things for people who want them will be nice :) I might start with some purses and maybe the chrochet hook case as it seems to be a popular post. So watch this space as my lovely brother said he'd make me a shop for my blog :)
