I showed a sneak of a secret project with my double zipper pocket tutorial. Well, that project got there yesterday. (I've been having mail dyslexia with a parcel for Danny being returned TWICE because I got the zip wrong the first time and the street wrong the next).
Yesterday, the project arrived safely at its destination, at Chez Spain in the US.
I used a beautiful purple shot cotton from Bali - figured I was safe with purple being intimately acquainted with both Terrain and Good Fortune - and put scraps of Good Fortune behind the windows.
You really can't see the sheen on the fabric from here. I love purple and I love shiny, so I was very sad to put this in a post bag and send it packing! I quilted it in a lovely regal purple Aurifil cotton as well.
I sacrificed my last decent sized piece of Terrain (it was a wrench) for the bag's interior. Someone said to me that bag interiors don't matter. I beg to differ. This bag and my own aqua version make me smile each time I peep inside.
Here's the whole bag.
And me modelling it. (Don't you love those Australian mid-winter skies?!)
It's a tiny bit long on me as I have the (possibly erroneous impression) that Kate is taller than me - I'm 164cm or about 5'4. Anyway, the photos don't do it justice, but I'm so glad it got there and so glad Kate likes it!
Oh and I've got a couple of giveaways coming up to celebrate the 400 follower mark, so come back Monday to check out the first!
