  • I totally wish I was being paid to give my opinion on this pen, or even having received it for free to review it. Unfortunately I just love it so much I felt I had to share it with you!

    This is a regular inky ball point pen type affair for writing on paper. Or as I like to....on fabric.
    Frixion!

  • So....a lovely lady friend of mine had a little bag from me and loved it so much she asked if I could make her one in the same design but out of some Cath Kidston oilcloth.

    I of course said yes, which led to a whole world of sewing I'd never encountered. Oilcloth....eek! Of course I had to practise by sewing a little pouch.

    Generally I didn't find it too difficult as long as I remembered that I couldn't pin it, iron it or feed it through the machine very easily....good....great.

  • So, this lovely lady who asked me to make her a bag....I know her from Christian chat and her chat name is Bubbles....so the obvious name for this little baggy is the Bubbles bag :)

    We had a chat and she opted for a two handled tote bag. It needed to have a zip closure and she wanted it in a gorgeous chocolate brown. Other than that (and her loving turquoise) the choice was mine. Seeing as I personally love pockets....I added three. One zipped, two slip. I also added a key hookey thing for her to clip her keys onto so they're easily accessible.

    Here is the final bag.

  • So, remember the bow pleat bag?

    I made one, editted it, made another, editted it again and finally made another and then I was happy with it?

  • Ok, so you're top stitching...picture the scene. Wait, that should be the other way round.

    Picture the scene...you're top stitching. (If you don't sew, ignore this whole post, it's not for you)
