In fact I got really excited especially when I found that the material was pre-cut so all I had to do was sew the seams, do a bit of turning out and hand-sew some buttons. ‘I can do this’ I thought.
So, after a good deal of hinting my husband bought me the book, located my practically unused 15-year-old sewing machine and encouraged me to stitch away.
Fortunately, Cath’s instructions were really clear and Hey Presto! my first bag was born. I say born because each of my bag styles has been given a name, have a look under the Family Tree to find out why.
