We have had family visiting and staying with us off and on since before Christmas (it was a lovely visit) and with all the holidays time has just slipped away from me. Also I forgot my camera at our Daughter's home during Christmas and she just brought it me last weekend, so I was with out my camera (it was just terrible) I had camera withdrawals..LOL
I was able to do some sewing before my Christmas break from work was over and I sewed the "Sophie's Bloomer Bag" created by Becky from "Sweet Cottage Dreams" !. I used dark gray 100% suiting wool and a plaid grey and white wool for the ruffled bloomers, I lined the bag with water proof dark gray/black fabric, also I did not finish the hem of the ruffles, instead I pulled the threads of fabric to leave a softer look since I was using wool and wool can tend to be heavy.
Sophie's Bloomer Bag is going to our daughter Desire'. Desire' wanted the ruffles on one side of the bag, Becky designed Sophie's Bloomer Bag with ruffles all the way around and she uses the pretties fabrics they are so light and fresh and very summery.
I enjoyed sewing Becky design and Desire' LOVES her bag! Our granddaughter Aleena wants one too, she says she wants to bring it school to carry a few of her books in..How sweet is that! Thank you Becky for designing a bag that all ages love!..
If you would like to purchase the Sophie's Bloomers Bag pattern just go over to Sweet Cottage Dreams and order it from Becky..
