… I spent the last weekend with 8 gorgeous Ladies from the Bee Germany together sewing, chatting and buying fabric.
So it happened that I bought some very untypical fabric for me. I was influenced and inspired at the same time from Ulrike and she was from me. She wanted to sew the Charlie Bag from Burda at our get together and I threw over my origin plans and switched over to this bag ;-).
Ok, we bought the same gobelin / tapestry, at least that´s what the salesman said, a lovely lining for 4 Euro per meter and for the ground we decided (together of course) for an undefined kind of fabric which is maybe used in the automotive industry – a kind of a cloth on gum?!?
So we started and finished the same project at the same weekend… it was so fun to share this – you could hear us saying bad bad words alle the time because this undefined cloth-gum-automotive-fabric was so bad to sew…but have a look. It looks gorgeous.
When my daughter saw this bag the first she said was: “This is very untypical for you!” And she is so right, but maybe that´s why I love it even more… and of course because I know there is a twin living somewhere in Germany ;-).
The next time when I make this pattern – and I am sure I will – the handles will become longer for me. It is an easy and free pattern and if you use only fabrics without cutting them in parts to sew them together again, you will finish very quickly!
