Out of the fog
The fog and drizzle that's been hanging about for the last few days has cleared today and when I ventured out I noticed this big clump of toadstools growing on a tree stump in the garden
The miserable weather hasn't bothered me though because I've been playing about indoors.
A friend asked me to make her a patchwork denim bag. She gave me an old pair of jeans and a denim shirt to work with, and asked me if I could make a feature of some of the embroidery on the shirt.
On one side I put the two shirt pockets. One pocket had a small ink stain at the bottom but that was easily covered with one of the silver buttons off the shirt, and I sewed on a few more to make it look deliberate
The other side incorporates part of the embroidered collar
I've picked out the dark red colour on the embroidery for the lining and added a couple of pockets and a key fob. I've lined the pockets in the denim which I really like against the red. The zipped pocket has got another zipped pocket inside at the bottom, to keep important things safe ;)
