Bag for Hanni

The renovations are going really well, David has next week off work so will then be able to do the wallpapering.  This week he has been filling in, varnishing and has started the painting, he's actually done loads but because he's still working it's been every evening, I'll post some more photos next week.  I've got so much on the go at the moment it's daft lol.  Just had another delivery of more t-shirts for another batch of logos.  Trying to finish machine embroidering some blocks for two 20" cushion covers for my two chairs.  My nephew and his partner are expecting a baby in the middle of December so I've been doing some bits and pieces for them.  I have finished a couple of cushions, a quilt top and couple of burp clothes.  I am also going to make two or three bibs on my embroidery machine, but I can't show you anything yet.  I'll update when I can.

I have however, made this little bag for Hanni, she likes the Cath Kidston spotty range of merchandise and I had some spotty fabric, so made this purple one, I do want to make a blue one as well so will be doing that as a break in between all the other stuff.  The embroidery pattern for this bag is from Disorderly Threads and that's on Etsy, I was just having a look around one day and stumbled across it.  The bag measures just under 8" by 5½", I thought Hanni would be able to put her cables and phone chargers etc in it.  She does really like it and it was very easy to make, so will definitely be doing a blue one.
I thought you'd like to see some action shots of the machine embroidery process.  In this one it looks nothing like a shoe lol.
