It's been a while!

By Mabi Azefor Fominyen

There comes a time when you really can't do all that you would have loved to do in a day!
Oh yes ! I suppose this holds true for many people.

I had been planning to pull-out my sewing machine and try out a few new designs but I have just not been able to find the time to do so. Procastination...., a busy schedule, .... or mere laziness ? I guess I have been so taken by many other things: school, family chores, work :to name but these!

Helas! I found the time this morning ! Indeed the time to once more put my sewing passion and creativity to test. So I went searching for and digging out some fabrics from my sewing basket. See what I found!

I figured it would be a good idea to design a small-purse using any of these fabrics- so I settled for the "blue & brownish-piece" . I placed the piece of cloth on my measuring table, plus the material for the inter-facing and another piece for the lining. Once I finished taking the measurements, I cut out the pattern and settled down to sewing.

In less that twenty minutes, I was through with the process!

See what I made !

Now I know I really didn't need to take much time to come up with this bag.
If you love it, then let me know.You don't mind having one, do you?
