|Who remembers these?|
When I was a youngster one of my favourite summer treats was a Jubbly, a drink which when frozen was eaten like a big ice pop. What has this got to do with sewing you say? Well, carrying on from my first attempt at an ipod cushion a conversation pointed me to a different design which is basically the same shape as a Jubbly. That and the colours of the materials I used to make a number of these for the up coming Handmade Market just reminded me of those childhood treats.
I am really beginning to enjoy working out how to make best use of the materials I obtained recently. It appeals to my type of creativity to try to make the pattern of material part of the design.
I recently bought a pair of nice curtains with a striped design, but not equal width stripes, and the weight of the material made it ideal for another bag. I decided on another backpack but wanted to play around with the pattern I had to make pockets on the sides. I have to say I am really pleased with the outcome.
This bag is slightly deeper than the original ones and has a pocket on either side.
