Bag Lady

Apologies for the teeny tiny pic - for some RANDOM reason I can't get the URL for my flickr pics unless I click on "all sizes" and then the pictures are rotated back to the original format. ggrrrr. So click over to flickr to see it properly if you'd like to.

*deep breaths*

Anyway here's a little look-see at my latest creation. I used my own pattern, IKEA fabric and I made the wooden handles myself too. I slaved away in the work shed with a hand saw, sander and lacquer. Am VERY proud of myself!

I've always loved wood work ( I grew up with a carpenter dad AND grandfather) and I'm keen to get back into it again.

It was meant to be a pressie, but I loved it too much!! I'll have to make another one for you Auntie!!
