Practising

The next time that I promise you guys a tutorial, please remind me to do it immediately!

You may remember that a few months ago I made up pattern for a craft caddy and a vanity case. I was so pleased with it that I promised to write a tutorial. Unfortunately life sort of got in the way and after scribbling down some rough dimensions and even rougher instructions, the project was laid aside.

The other night, I sat down in my sewing room, determined to finally get my act together and write the long promised tutorial.
I started off well,
but as the evening progressed my photos got worse,
... I forgot to take photos
... and finally I realised that I had done various important steps in the wrong order (oops!)
Laminated cotton is not very forgiving of mistakes- unpicked stitches leave a series of small punctures in the fabric.
I gave up in disgust for the night!
The next day I carried on and managed to finish my craft caddy.
When I was about ninety percent finished I was in despair at the rough and ready sewing, but by the end I managed to salvage most of the crumby workmanship. Needless to say, the tutorial will have to wait!!!
I am hoping that I have learnt from my mistakes and perfected my method.
I'll try to get some more supplies as soon as possible so that I can have another crack at it...
Watch this space!
