British Summer

Believe it or not, this was my attempt at choosing summery colours... However, as it's been raining and cloudy so much this summer it turned out more appropriate for Halloween :D

John Lewis is getting better at stocking 'fashionable' designers, and I'm very happy to finally have some Joel Dewberry after drooling over other bloggers' photos for so long. Now I just need a central London shop to start selling all the Moda fabric, then I'll have a real problem.

I first saw this bag here, and downloaded the pattern here. As I didn't want such a large bag I took a few inches off the length, and due to my love of pockets decided not to make it reversible by cutting the lining down instead of ruffling it to fit, so as to make it easier to sew the pockets in. I also added a magnetic popper and, once again, was too enthusiastic to read the instructions in the pattern, so ended up with very wide handles. They are comfy though, so I shall count it as a design feature, not an error ;)
