Foxy Bag


I could so completely get used to the school holidays. Yesterday I went to the optician, popped into my new classroom, went for a cheeky Wetherspoons lunch, came home, did a touch of school work, made some sausage and lentil casserole before pub quizzing it up in the evening. Who has time for teaching in amongst a schedule like that?

At the weekend I got the train down to Brighton for her hen do. We tasted wine, sketched inflatable man dolls, ate the most amazing risotto in the world, drank cocktails, danced, slept, wandered on the pier, ate icecream, sunbathed and ate fish and chips. It was a fabby weekend and great for the sun tan. For the occasion I decided to rustle up a wee foxy bag for the bride-to-be. As one does.

I used blue foxy fabric from the wonderful FabricLand and a tote bag tutorial from Skip to my Lou. It was simple and fun and I couldn't recommend the tutorial enough. I can see myself making a school bag for myself in the weeks to come using the same pattern. Although I lined it with the same fabric, the bag is actually reversible and you could opt to go for a contrasting fabric inside.

Check out my top stitching! I was so proud of this beauty!
