New bag pattern coming soon!

I haven’t been a very good blogger lately.  But I have been very busy just the same. 
Summer fete season has started down here in Devon – we love our festivities and there seems to be a different village fete to attend every weekend.  I have had time though to complete the design above for a summer bag – an easy machine applique panel and a nice curved bottom make this a great fun bag to take to the fete.  The pattern will be included in the next issue of the Bustle & Sew magazine (out on 28th July).  Also in the next issue will be my topsy turvy animal alphabet ….
… as in “S” is for chickS ….
.. “F” is for “Friendly rabbit”.  Happily “G” is still for “Goose!”  The panel’s nearly finished and hopefully I’ll be able to show you the complete work very soon.
Off to the fete now …. Chillington this week … lots of good cake makers in Chillington – better get there early before the cake stall sells out!  See you soon!



Oooh, the bag is so pretty. I look forward to each and every issue of the magazine. This one promises to be another winner!

That bag is looking so cute for summer, Helen, and I'm thrilled you're sharing the alphabet. 🙂
