Not another bag mum

Remember my last post well Lucas went to bed one night this week saying
"not another bag mum"

A bag for Gemma

Gemma has a few weekends away coming up and she wanted a bag that she can carry on as hand luggage.
I should have taken a photo with the zip open it is really roomy with a zip pocket inside.

A bag for Gemma

The pattern came from this book if you are after a good bag making book I recommend this one.
Lorraine has them in stock at the moment.
It has patterns but is full of helpfull hints and lots of pictures.

Great book

Now for something not baggy......Lucas and his mates went to a fancy dress last night here they are before they left. Lucas went as Captain Jack Sparrow. I dyed some wool and made his dreadlocks added some beads etc. I skin glued 2 pieces to his chin so I thought we did quite well. I thought Captain America was fantastic however he thought he would need a catheter as going for a pee was a marathon effort. Not good when you are a 21 year old male out for a night on the beers LOL.
You may be wondering why Nick is laying with a carpet over him????? he went as Princess Jasmin's flying carpet.
His girlfriend went as Princess Jasmine.

Fancy dress
