As opposed to my journey up North on Friday when I was pushed onto an escalator and ended up black and blue with a few bruises and a broken crutch as it got lodged sideways on a moving escalator I thought I’d show you my black and red bag. I can now reveal my first ever bag attempt, and I even surprised myself that it was good enough to give to my friend Jane for her black and red themed birthday at the weekend! I got the pattern from Ali Foster on Etsy and it was so easy to follow, probably the clearest pattern instructions yet! So now I am going to embark on a bag making frenzy, ready to list in my etsy shop hopefully before I go back to work. Your thoughts and feedback are always welcome.
