Our Creative Spaces...Bag 0' Fun

So where did that week go?
Thankfully there is something to show for it!
I made this bag, from a pattern that I bought earlier in the year down in Berrima (this has to be a record for me - using a pattern this early in owning it!)
Also there were some lovely colours in my fabric stash that made it easy to put together:
As a bonus I worked how to do a machine join on the binding. The join looks really neat and the binding sits so nice and flat. Now I know how to do it, there will be a lot more of this in my binding repertoire.

Love the look of padded bag handles. Sewing long straight lines is really quite soothing!
The finishing touch...
To bag an eyeful of some more pretty creative spaces,
head on over to Kootoyoo's Our Creative Space

thanks for taking a peek over the fence...
