I am quite chuffed with how it turned out, especially given my first failed attempt at purse construction. I now feel more confident about making graceful kelly bags for my nieces' 21st birthday - I can't believe that they will be 21 next week. Mind boggling!
And so to my conundrum.... As some of you know, my mum is a wee bit poorly (well, to be honest a lot bit poorly). She has asked me to make a "cover" for her wheelchair. After talking to her, what she means is like a cosy or gro-bag type thing that velcos down the front and, I loved this bit, is "like a cape!" I'm popping up to see her next weekend so I have about 10 days to design and complete this "cover". I'm going to ask one of my sisters to get the wheelchair dimensions then I have to draft a pattern of sorts. A LOT of head scratching has already happened and I'm guessing a lot more is to come. I think I've chosen the fabric though - from my stash too!
bought from Ikea a wee while back - like home dec in weight but not too dull and I think I'll have enough! I'm torn between two fabrics for the inside....

I'll be making one of my sisters soon

hence the creases, and love to pieces. I've only used a small
bit to make a bag for another sister.
I'm linking this to Freshly Pieced's WIP Wednesday as I will be working on this tomorrow too!
