Some time last year I bought one of the Japanese crafting books on making bags. I have looked at it numerous times and found the thinking part of it too much. I have wanted to give it a try for ages and yesterday Geoff took the girls to the pool and I had time to figure it out. I have to say, it's SUPER EASY. SUPER easy, I can't believe I left it so long. Okay these are simple tote bags, but it couldn't be more straight forward. I tried to take shots of me "wearing" the bags, but I was slouching trying to fit everything in the shot and think I may have received emails asking about my third pregnancy as a result, not flattering.
So, these take about half an hour each to make, start to finish - really! Be prepared, I think this could be addictive and everyone I know will most probably be receiving a gifted bag at some point in the near future.
