I have also just tried making a makeup purse-- made it in plain fabric as a trial and I must say it was OK---( am carrying my current stitchery that I am working on in it instead)-- so will now spend more time by making another with a patchwork design. Will post it on the blog when I have finally made it.
It is a glorious day in Sydney today-- the sky is a beautiful blue and it is chilly but not windy. So I am off to the shops for groceries for tonight's dinner-- will walk along the beach to the shops. I wonder if the seal will be there today? It has been using that same spot as a resting place for a few weeks but has not been there this last week.
Have a lovely relaxing weekend.
