Crafty Catch Up

I finally plucked up the courage to try out the Peg Bag idea. I've used this is a guide: http://www.allfreecrafts.com/sewing/peg-bag.shtml but instead of using a tea towel I interfaced and lined some of my fabric.

The first one (pink cakes) didn't work out great. For one it's too big. But mostly, my sewing was too wobbly. I think it's because I got my fabric too thick, effectivly 3 layers which I then doubled over... my poor little sewing machine struggled!

I learned from it though, and my second one (strawberry) was smaller and neater. That's the one my mum will get for Christmas (she said she needed a new peg bag).

I'll keep the first one for myself. Ok, it looks a little tatty but so what? There will only be me (and sometimes hubby if I'm lucky) will ever really look at it or use it.

And I have finally finished Baby Ben's birth record!
