Waiting for the post to come

I have been eagerly waiting for the post to arrive today.  I was really pleased to see this when I opened the parcel. It is a parcel of compressed wadding!

OK, so it may not set your heart racing but it does mean that I can now get on with some sewing over the weekend (hopefully).

I have been waiting a long time patiently for Judith to release her Slouch Bag Pattern and as soon as I saw it on Etsy I pressed the 'buy' button.

You too can buy the pattern at Judith's Etsy Pattern Shop

I have some yardage of DS Flea Market Fancy Bouquet in red that I have been saving for this bag. On Wednesday I found some fabric in the same red/persimmon colour, to use as lining, at a store on Newark market.

Now all I have to do is cut out the pattern pieces and get sewing!

  1. Off you go then. Can't wait to see the result.

  2. Isn't it funny the things that give us pleasure!! I would never have even known what compressed wadding was a few years ago - now I would be just as excited with a parcel like that!!!

  3. Can't wait to see the finished result!

  4. Ooh your bag is going to look so great in those fabrics and colours!

  5. Oooooo I do like that Slouch Bag! Can't wait to see your version x

  6. Oh those fabrics are delicious! Can't wait to see the finished bag! Thanks so much for the plug friend! Jxo

  7. That is going to be one gorgeous slouch bag indeed!

  8. Great fabric choices - can't wait to see your bag!

  9. I've admired that bag too - can't wait to see how it looks all done then I may splurge and buy the pattern too... Compressed? Is that fusible fleece?
