Tonight is the night for FNSI.
Handmade by Heidi

Tonight I was stuck, not for ideas or choice but as to what to do.  Did I work on something that existed and needed to be finished or did I start something new?

In the end it was something new.

I had been looking at bag patterns this week and found a few that I really liked and so decided to start one.

It came from this blog and is simply called Pattern for the masses.  I changed it slightly and sewed the lining inside out and turned it through a small hole that still needs to be stitched up.  It was an easy pattern to follow and fairly simple to construct however I do regret my choice of interfacing.  I used a very firm and solid one that does not play nicely however holds its shape beautifully.  At least it wont ever sag.

So that was my FNSI.
