Don't you just love those free tutorials that bloggers are kind enough to share? I found one last year that I wanted to try but it was an english translation from a German blog. I couldn't quite understand all the instructions. It was for a cosmetic bag that was made in fabric.
I asked a good friend who is a whiz at sewing all sorts of things if she would kindly try to figure the instructions out. I'm happy to say she did and here is my finished bag.
It was very frustrating trying to figure out, especially the part where the zip ends go and it nearly got trashed. That's the time to walk away and come back later. Well I decided, it wasn't great but it wasn't worth chucking so I did the best I could to get it together and now I'm glad I didn't bin it. I won't be making another one I don't think.
The tutorial is here if you are interested and there is a link for the english translation.
Other things I'm working on are not blogworthy at the moment so you'll have to put up with some sneak peeks.
