A Little More Needlecraft

On Monday, I promised to show you the lovely bag my husband made with the leftover fabric from my cushion covers.  I've been moaning for ages that you can't get hard-wearing but lovely tote bags that can take my work folders, but I will moan no more (well, maybe a little... I'm sure I can find something else to moan about! I'm very talented like that.).



It's a nice big size so it will easily fit a few binders in and my notebooks and things, with strong comfy straps.  I've already had a number of compliments about it!

Today's cat picture is a box-loving feline enjoying some quality time with his/her cardboard:


Thanks so much for visiting,

  18. Fabulous tote bag and I love the fabric! What is it about cats and boxes? It seems they simply MUST take control of any space large enough for them to wedge themselves. lol

  22. This fabric is beyond being gorgeous! Bet the cushions are wowzers too. But this bag....and your DH made it????!!!!Does he do this kind of thing as his vocation? Or is it a hobby???Whatever...this is one VERY impressive bag. And you give him a BIG, BIG hug for making it for you. Tell him all your bloggers are so envious...:-) TFS

  23. Now that is a man bag with a difference!! Very nice indeed, that fabric is lush :D His handles are good too, long enough to put over your shoulder. It's amazing how few bags do that. Move over Cath Kidston...the bag makers of GB are fighting back against your overpriced, shoddily made goods!!!
