The computer is back with a new keyboard, Jack is back with new arteries around his heart - well, not really new because they were taken from his left leg - and I'm back. Thanks for all the kind comments on my previous post, I appreciate your support!
Maria Wallin's Biabag tutorial to help me, but I made the bag bigger and simpler. I used two fabrics instead of three, no interfacing and left off the side pockets and the pocket with a flap. I'm pleased with how it turned out, but I'm not sure that I'm well suited to a bag with a lot of pockets - you have to remember which pocket a thing is in, and put it back in the same pocket when you're done with it!
I'm glad to hear the good news that Jack is back at home,and your new bag is lovely, pockets or not. I always have to rummage in mine, and the car keys always fall to the very bottom.ReplyDelete
Your bag looks great!!! :)ReplyDelete
And it seems to have potential for tatting embellishments!
That did cross my mind.Delete
Bags with lots of pockets- my dream! It really looks "neat and trim". I'm very glad that Jack is new and improved. It's nice too that you have working computer/keyboard. Love your posts!ReplyDelete
I'm glad all is back to a more familiar routine! I do like your bag. I like pockets so that I know I have everything I need! ;-)ReplyDelete
So happy to see you back on line,ReplyDelete
Glad that your husband is home and recovering, it’s not easy when they are in hospital
That is a lovely bag, it’s strange they go into hospital and there seems to be mountain of stuff that has to go backwards and forwards.
Perhaps some tatting embellishments would give the bag your personal touch
What a way to recycle, Jack ;-PReplyDelete
I agree about too many pockets! And especially in a clutch purse - who had the brilliant idea to have so many compartments and pockets there ?!
Yes, the bag deserves some tatting :-)
Ha ha, I have this problem with the pockets in one of my bags, I can never remember where things are.ReplyDelete
Nice roomy bag.
I'm familiar with that procedure Jack had - hope his leg is recovering as well as the rest of him (and you!!!). Things may taste/smell bad for a while too - they certainly did for my dad.ReplyDelete
Hang in there. And the bag is great!
That’s interesting, yes Jack is finding food less appetising, I hope that improves soon.Delete
Great news on Jack but now you'll have to stop him from overdoing things. Hope the puppies are doing OK too.ReplyDelete
Two have gone to their new homes, the third will go next week, leaving only Mex.Delete
Yay for Jack! 💕ReplyDelete
I am so sorry that my thoughts and prayers were not with you as you went through this experience. I was not checking anyones blog for a while and I have spent some time at hospitals myself and those large bags are a must! I love yours and I feel the inside is a treat for your self its great❤ReplyDelete
Good news! Best wishes for thorough healing for Jack. Love the bag - I know what you mean, but I love all those pockets and compartments in a bag. At least the lost items are contained somewhat, haha!ReplyDelete
Wonderful news about your husband and your bag is great!ReplyDelete
Peace and blessings,
