Sew! by Cath Kidston

I finally got down to sewing a shoulder bag during the two weeks my internet connection was down. The free time was greatly appreciated too, since my current bag was already splitting at the seams. 

My thoughts on Sew! by Cath Kidston:

It contains quite a number of interesting projects, both simple and moderately tedious, especially if like me, you have to sew by hand instead of using a sewing machine. Hence, this project took me much longer than it should have.

Although it states on the cover that this book includes everything needed to make the bag, thread and needle isn't provided. Neither are scissors. So do remember to get these beforehand.

The pieces of fabric are already cut to size, so the pattern sheet is redundant for this project, unless you plan on making more of the same with cloth you purchase or make some other variation of this bag.

What disappointed me a little, is that the bag isn't as bag as I had imagined it to be. The base is only 9cm wide, and the bag approximately 20cm by 20cm. More than enough space for a long wallet, handphone, keys, tissues and perhaps a small cosmetic pouch, but definitely none left for a book.

Hope you do find it! It's really fast if you have a sewing machine. If I remember correctly there are others as well - patchwork, dolls, cross stitch,and I think the latest is a Christmas decoration.
