The count down to Xmas
Merry Xmas


I have had to re-make my knitting bag. The zipper broke and I thought about throwing it away and just making a new one, but that seemed a bit extreme.  So I unpicked the old one. Boy, I sure made it strong but I finally got it apart.

Replacing the zipper was the easy bit.

The whole thing had to go back to the beginning. The repair took a couple of hours, so not quiet as long as making a new one, but, I have to say I found the process very satisfying and I got the lining sitting a bit better, that just slipped into position.  I couldn't find a mauve zipper long enough, so, pink it is.

I am auditioning fabrics for the mug bag.

Mending things you've made is often a demonstration of just how solidly you made them to begin with!

That is for sure.
