Making a Tilda purse
The instructions were really clear but I do have a confession to make! Remember when I told you that I was like a bull in a china shop - well it has happened again. In my haste to get going on the purse I stupidly cut out the spotted material instead of following the instructions and keeping it uncut. Now, I would usually have lost heart at this stage but decided to carry on and make the best of it, after all it wasn't going to be the end of the world. I also decided to hand sew it so I could also watch a programme on TV which I didn't want to miss............It all came together quite nicely but one thing I realise I must do for the blog is to take more photographs. I have been thinking about another camera but after taking some advice from the lovely Tina, I have decided not to rush out just yet but continue with my mobile phone, so do apologise to my lovely readers about the quality of the images. As you can probably see, photography is not my best medium.
I did have to fiddle around with the spotted material in order to make it all fit together reasonably well but did get there in the end with a lot of help from my iron.........it is a wonder tool for sewing I must admit.
Here is the finished little purse, such a cutie - I did add some little flowers too which I hope you like. Bye for now.xx
