    The pressure is on when you buy expensive lovely fabric. I’ve no doubt your weekend back will be gorgeous and I really look forward to seeing the pictures!

    i bought this lovely wool tweed material and matching fake leather in dark green. As i allways dreamed of having a nice and elegant weekender bag and each of them i liked so far has been horrible expensive, so i will try to make one, out of the above material…… hope to start after my childrensroom-story had an end (soon…….. :-)

    Wow, just realised that you too are in Berlin. Ok, so the world is not that small but still… I see you do things with beads- do you know the little bead shop on Linien str.? It sells beads from Czech- quite a nice glass collection. But I feel I might be telling you something you know already.

    I was out at Hermanplatz at the flea market buying fabric- its so cheap and great there…. I don’t feel so bitter when something I make goes wrong when the fabric only costs two Euros a meter!

    Thanks for your comments!

    Thank you! It’s so nice when you discover people’s creations because of comments they leave you… I loved looking at yours. I really want to start making some clothes for my husband as well; there aren’t as many projects with men’s clothing here, so yours were great to see! Cheers!

    HI Ralf – great minds think alike – when i shot the photo I thought how lovely the ruffled texture would look as home furnishing. I am going to make a mini cover for my daughters bed and then maybe try it scaled up for my own bed. Cant wait to see your version too. Happy sewing x
