After the success of the Blanche Bag with my youngest daughter last month, I knew I had to make the one for her older sister as promptly as possible. The plan had been to make both in parallel but that didn't quite work out. Anyway, I started cutting it on our return from holidays and I must admit, this is quite a time consuming part as there are so many pieces to cut once you add the main fabric, the lining, the interfacing and the stabiliser! And of course I got really side-tracked with my dressmaking projects.
But I had put this project as my April One Monthly Project so with the end of the month looming, it was time to get focused again, nothing better than a deadline (even a self-imposed one) to get back on track. So I finally started sewing on Saturday night and only went as far as getting the zip for the internal pocket on the lining piece and putting the main body pieces together.... not very far really!
tiny bag since she started ballet classes 6 years ago so that was well overdue!
