being away so long from stitching has made me itching to get back on track. the bag above was lacking a handle, so i asked my mum to stitch it on. i dont know why she worries, she taught me to sew, i think she likes perfect. the outside was made from a pair of old monsoon trousers which i loved so i wanted to turn them into something. the lining was some patchwork material that i let my mum choose. something which is very difficult for me to do. as i like complete control over my work. and the tiny tag on the front say ameliorate, which means 'to get better', kind of apt. the tag is made out of some old linen, soaked in tea, then put through an old typewriter to get the letters.
