Much talk of hand cranked machines on the forum (Creative Living) inspired me to get all my hand machines out and get them sorted, as per my previous post, but I couldn't wait; got quite inspired! Threaded up Bean's Jones this morning and set to with the patchwork skirt I'd been planning for a while:
The body of the skirt is done now, it needs a waistband and the hem trimmed with something rather lovely, so I might do that later. It'll probably need lining too. Will post pic of completed skirt when it's done. Total cost under £1 using jumble sale etc fabrics.
Here's the bag; I can't take credit for the original idea, but I think it's great and I've made several of them. Total time: 15 minutes, total cost 15p :) Easy to make and customise, and as is said, "Been there, done that, used to be the t-shirt......." LOL
