Wednesday again so time to bare all 
(full details are on our lovely Queen of the desks blog here).

My desk this week is my dining room table and I am finishing off a new cross body handbag I am making.  The Coven (our weekly crafting group) have been making them so I thought I would give it a go, it's not that straight forwarded so it has taken a while and I am almost finished.  The ladies have been very patient with me...watching a left handed impatient sewer use right handed scissors and someones beloved machine requires a LOT of restraint (thank you coven!).

This weeks "Man Bites Dog" cards made me think of Britain's Got Talent-'Dog Sues Lawyer'

I case your wondering the cover to my sewing machine has band stickers on it...though I notice my husbands band The Setbacks do not appear to have given me a sticker yet to add to my collection-most remiss!!

Happy crafting


  1. LOL... I'm sure you will soon point out the error of his ways! Great to see someone tackling something that is out of their comfort zone! Elaine No. 11

  2. Yeah, I know what you mean about cross body bags, getting the strap right for one. Isn't it amazing how long it has to be? I remember thinking this can't be right and double checking measurements all over again!

  3. Oh I have discovered the joys of crossbody bags this year - but could never make one. Good luck with yours. Happy WOYWW. Susanne #38

  4. Cross body bags are essential items I find. I can't go out without mine. Bet you make a fabulous one! Take care Zo xx 44

  5. That bag looks wonderful. Good for you that you're persevering. It sounds as though it would be quite difficult. Love the cards!

  6. I love the look of your bag. The colours are great. Well done you for doing something outside your comfort zone. I saw a bag tutorial on Pinterest which I thought I'd try. I do not have a coven around me though and that feels very daunting.

    Happy WOYWW,
    Have a good week too,

  7. Your cross body purse looks great.
    Have a great day.

  8. good luck finishing the cross body bag! I have often thought your coven sounds great fun! Helen #1

  9. It's all about the publicity - he probably thinks you're a done deal and active audience all in one! Demand that sticker! I'm hoping to see the bag in action very soon!

  10. Hope we get to see the bag finished. You can get left handed scissors which you would fins much easier to use. Have a great week and happy woyww, Angela x 21

    1. The coven bought me some....I forgot to take them!

  11. You did a great job on the bag, you'll certainly fit everything you could possibly want into it, and more! It was great to meet up with you yesterday, I can now put a face and voice to the blog!
