Alana's sewing lesson.

Hi everyone

I have been sewing, but something for our Brompton bikes, a bag carrier.  The bags we have are huge and I wanted something that would hold an ordinary laptop bag when I cycle to the office via the trians.  I used the frame from my existing bag and made my first template Friday night, and finished a 2nd one made out of waxed cotton today.  Pictures later but I am getting there and it works, just need to refine the whole process.

I thought you would like to share how Alana got on with her first sewing lesson at the ripe old age of 2 years 11 months old.  I am starting her off young.

FYI I am wearing my lace top with white cami underneath first blogged about here.

Later we went to have lunch followed by an ice cream in a great Italian restaurant local to us.

Father's day in the UK tomorrow so cooking lunch for the family, but hopefully I can squeeze a little sewing in before everyone arrives.

Catch you later......................
