Summer Bag

It was a very busy evening last night, so didn't get chance to do any crafting, until after 10pm when I suddenly decided that I must make at least a start on my latest idea before I went to bed!

I had drawn a sketch during the day, in a break at work, so I used it to create a template and cut out some felt.  That is as far as I got, but I'm pleased so far.  I just need to start sewing it when I get the chance.  I hope it works out how I'm imagining - not like my first failed cupcake!!

More on that when it is finished, but for now... some pictures of a summer bag I made last year:

The bag!

Tie-detail on side

Zip fastening on top

Inside zip pocket with button detailing
I didn't really know what I was doing, so kind of made it up as I went along!  It ended up a lot bigger than I had planned, but I guess that makes it good as a beach bag... hopefully I've learned some lessons for the next bag...
