Its a long time, precisely eight months,that I have been away from the blogland, neither blogging nor visiting your captivating blogs and posts.. Well life has been hectic with parental commitments and so on..Infact during this course of time I learnt how a complete long black out from the regular hobbies can make one lose touch with them.. Might not be a problem with everyone.. But for me I had begun to lose touch with my needle work skills. Procastination along with a starting trouble was always pulling me back .. Finally the mere sight of one fav blue and white gingham changed the moods altogether and I kinda became haunted with a few ideas to sew.. This time fabric totes again.. But one or two new accessories like a Travel folder,a fabric file are new attempts...Down the line I have been making errors and often had to refer to tutes and other sewing techniques...So needed lil bit of seam picking and alterations here and there before completing them.But it has been interesting since the designs are my own .
In the bag seen above, the main fabric is blue and white gingham with the base of the tote in polka dotted cotton..The bottom corners have been boxed to give more structure to the base.The layers are all interfaced.
The one seen below is with a plain blue outer fabric and blue and white gingham lining..The interior pockets are in plain blue ..There are pockets on both sides of the main body.

Guess this project has been a kickstart for myselves.. I needed a lot of inspiration after the break and to a great extend my sweet friend Nima has been able to spark off the dormant creativity in me..She is on a trip to India to be with her inlaws.. Such a charming lady she is; am sure her inlaws would defintely be more than gratified to have her with them.You can have a gala time going through an assortment of eyecandies if you visit her bloghttp://www.madetotreasure.blogspot.com/
My teenaged daughter who is studying there in India has been asking me for quite some time now, to sew some bags that would match her jeans and tops. These will be my Christmas gifts for her .. Hope she will luv to use them with her white tops and light blue jeans.
Before winding up this post lemme remind myselves about the bunches of goodies waiting for me in all your awesome breathtaking blogs and posts.. Longing to visit them all after such a long spell of
Wish you all a great weekend with lots of cherishable sewing moments..
