I finally sewed the handles on my new Camelia purse this morning. Woohoo, that’s how long it took me… :-P But it’s summer and there are so many other things to do outside.

We had talks with laurent about calling it the boobs/hawaian-bikini bag, ..but I thought Camelia may sound better ;-)

The pattern is now being tested and I’m hoping to release it sometime by next week. Will try to take better outdoor pics too… :-)

Yesterday was my MIL’s birthday, and she invited us all to the restaurant. We had a very lovely evening, always great to see all the family together.

Earlier that day I decided I wanted to sew her a pleated cosmetic bag. There are some very pretty patterns on Etsy, but I didn’t have time to wait for the pattern… Plus I felt like I didn’t have time to follow a pattern either (which is probably a wrong idea, as following precise directions means less trial and error.. but I don’t like following patterns much)

Anyways, after sewing most of the afternoon, here are hastily taken pics of the little bag I came up with just minutes before leaving for the restaurant. Far from perfect, especially for the format (next time, I’ll make it wider!) but other than that it looks pretty good. Pleats on the main panel, nice flashy pink lycra shiny fabric on the sides, pretty flowery plum ribbon for decoration and a side mini-handle..
I used very pretty silk for the lining, and added a little pocket for her lipstick or whatever.

I think she liked it. :-)

We also made a fabric heart with the girls (to use as a kee ring) but I forgot to take pics. Next time..
