Woke up at 230 and couldn't get back to sleep so had a rummage around my fabric and made myself a lightweight bag that I can fold up and put in my work handbag for those bits of unexpected shopping
Handles are a bit on the long side and it wouldn't carry much but then that's not what it is for. I didn't interface it because I didn't want to increase the bulk ad it will be folded up most of the time it's my " just in case" bag and so much nicer than a rolled up plastic one

What a great project!  My tote is a free PG Tips one  :|

4am usually sees me knitting, crocheting or ironing.  OH would grumble if I started using Sewing Machines so early.  I would only come down to do any of these if the reading failed.

I'm having a good spell lately, and have had 2 full nights sleep (6hours).

Jessie, who is very happy to be here!!  :),  but who has far too many sewing machines to be healthy, and a fabric stash which is becoming embarrassing.

Only just noticed this! Well done on turning your insomnia to good use. I like the colours. Have you used it yet?

Feeling the fear and doing it anyway .... er sometimes!
