Mission accomplished!!!



After 2 weeks, I can happily say that my secret project is done! I was not so sure to reach this point, even because the work required (it's all hand sewn ) was really challenging and I'm not an expert in sewing techniques, just a willing autodidact! For this simple reason, usually there are a lot of mistakes and an infinite of do/undo..... So, at a certain point I decided to hammer on some rivets! I did it on the floor of my studio because I was not so sure about the response of my table to all my brutal hammering....




When the banging stopped and the rivets were in place with no damage (fingers still safe!), I started to sew together the two parts with a very tiny blanket stitch! At the end of this relaxing part I started to be exited, because I knew that the project was finally reaching its shape....





Phew! Just after that, I opened a box in which I store some colourful metallic hooks, but it was not simple to choose the right one...anyway, purple maybe...




Another problem to solve : the strap! Do you think that after all this work I just went outside to buy one? NO WAY! So I started the strap, sewing it with patience and patience...




Yes! Some blue ric rac on a nice red&white gingham ribbon....!! So the last chapter of the crafty adventure was not so close to an end.....




....Margot was supposed to stay there as my supporter, but she was more interested in looking outside the window, maybe some little birds? I was too busy to remember those details....




......After hours spent in sewing (ric rac on one ribbon and both red and green blanket stitch to join two ribbons together), I finally had my FIRST FELT MATRIOSKA BAG , all handmade by me !!!!! BRAVA!!





So, I and my little boy had a try with this cutie! I was so proud of me at the end of this everlasting task : I didn't believe that I could see an end to all this ! I'm absolutely smitten by my little bag, and you?
