First Finish for 2012

 I have my first finish for the new Year, its seems strange to be typing 2012 now, will take a bit to get used to that.  So here is my Isabella's Weekend Away by Natalie Ross, this is a colaboration with #1 son, I couldnt work out where to put the fabrics, so he played with them till I thought it looked good, then he worked out what handle fabric I should use and also the yolk of the bag.  

Close up of the stitchery, which featured in an earlier post

Back of my bag, just need to put the cardboard bottom in it 

While I am typing this we are having a discussion of how to make chain mail, and how hard is it to sew knitted stuff on to non knitted stuff.....gotta love boys.....they know what they want but not what its called.  While I am sewing he is making armor for his new Cosplay costume.....the family that crafts together.....yeah whatever lol....

Well thats enough from me........back to the sewing room

Happy stitching
