So here are my fabric choices. When I say choices, I mean what I could find in the pull out drawer under the bed from left over projects from days gone by.
My last bit of Laura Ashley curtain material left from my lounge curtains, dark blue jacquard used to cover a window seat in a house I lived in over 10 years ago, and some plain green heavy cotton for the inside pockets which was in a bag given to me.
I did open up two new rolls of ribbon to make the elastic casings and the edge binding.
It all came together really well and I love the way you can use the handles for your shoulder or short. Chantal is French and trying to remember how to knit so I have ordered her a French knitting magazine Phildar to go inside, maybe French instructions will be better than my English ones!
Are you all thinking about gifts yet? What are you making?
Heureux à tricoter!
