|The colour is a little more raspberry than these pics indicate, a lovely rich colour|
When we left Miss L's teacher she had her head almost in her bag reading the personal ads and laughing.
I am also pleased to say she took them in the lighthearted way they were intended and was not offended, you never know...
|This bag feel really lovely, so soft|
|Silver square-edged rings on the strap and front tab, again!|

|Little zipper tab again - chosen by Miss L because as she told me, "I love Miss P".|
I really enjoyed making the bag - but putting the interfacing on was a bit tedious, especially when I was dying to rip into the sewing!
Nikki advised me to accept the kind offer of use of an Elna press, as per the lovely Wendy, for the next time and that using a press such as this is a really great tool for bag preparation.
The details of what I used and where I got it are in this post in case you were wondering.
|Lara's key tab idea again - I really wish my bag had one of these!|
Sue of Millrose also reminded me that I should be using the dual feed function of the machine, sort of like a built-in walking foot, to feed these thicker layers through.
I was very grateful for this reminder as it made it even easier.
I haven't talked about it much but I am loving the new machine - it makes sewing even more of a pleasure and there are still so many things for me to learn.

I say 'all' because Miss L is in a class with a shared teaching position - two teachers who together make an amazing team - but that means only one thing to me - THREE TEACHER BAGS NEXT YEAR!!!! (from that year on really as Miss G will go the year after...)
Cam - you better start that bag challenge in about May this year to get me going early!
