One of the project for my workshops after the summer holidays is sewing a shopping/tote bag. They can be made from various kind of fabrics like denim, cotton, oilcloth, twill and even curtain fabrics. They have plenty of room for embellishments with appliques or ribbons and can be made with a zip, press button or normal button for fastening. The choice is yours...

It was Pinafore day today - and the three ladies had lovely and very productive day. Please excuse the funny angle of the photos, I can assure you all dresses were symmetrical :-)
Debbie made a lovely, summery pinafore in cute cotton print
Sally promised her 3yr old daughter to bring a dress home - and she did a perfect job
And Barbara added an extra frill to her autumnal pinafore in fine baby cord.
