I have finished my 'No Place Like Home Bag' by Anni Downs
I have thoroughly enjoyed this bag and I love it to bits
from cutting the squares
to joining them into strips
and then hand quilting
sewing the binding on
down to choosing the buttons
I looked through my collection and saw that I had timber ones back from the eighties when I knitted Mr Armchair a cardigan......
the other ones I though were a perfect tealy colour to match
the pic shows the teal one on the reverse side but further down there is the other side
I even tried to machine sew the buttons on but ended up doing it by hand
I woke up Sunday morning thinking I'll do a photo shoot down the beach when I have finished the bag
Didn't get there till nearly 5pm though
I wanted JoJo to come with me but she can be hard to move especially if she is engrossed in her music
So off I toddled by myself and about 10 minutes later her and Mr Armchair appeared!!!!
This is the first shot and lucky 2 bits of driftwood were already there......
I took lots of pics of the front of the bag
the tide was coming in so had to be careful although it did get a little wet
I don't mind that though......love the idea of sea water on it
Then going back I thought it might look nice in the grass which of course it did!!!
Then Mr A said what about the back of it
well I hadn't thought of that......so back down to the beach
and he came up with the idea of burying a part of the timber and hanging the back
Great idea I thought (just as well he came down)
and this is the last shot!!!
I have thoroughly enjoyed making this bag.....it was such a pleasure and a lot of fun
especially with Anni's great instructions!!!
Thanks so much Anni for a wonderful bag pattern and kit
I have loved every step of the way of this!!!!
