Little zipper bag

Published by under Sewing

I needed something to keep together all the random bits in my purse. So I made this when I was up in the morning with jet lag. It’s lined. I’m quite pleased with how it came out. Perhaps I will put together a tutorial if I have time. Here are some other pictures.

French lunch

I decided to try the meat pate. It was actually quite good. We also learned that when you order “cheese and potatoes” you get cheese. And you get potatoes. It’s up to you to put them together ๐Ÿ™‚
