|My first top is still the most successful though my weight gain has made it a little uncomfortable at present.|
|Taken to show old hem mark. How obvious is it?|
|Sleeve turned back to show added facing and junction with original lining|
|The towelling has quite a loose loopy texture|

- The large bags I carry to class are not strong enough and rip. I’d like to make a strong canvas bag and maybe even have a couple of internal partitions or pockets. I’d also like to use some machine embroidery to decorate it. In the meantime, I’ll be using supermarket heavy duty bags.
- I’d like a bag to hold my knitting, so I can carry it around. It needs to be long enough for the needles and fairly capacious. I’m sure somewhere I do have a knitting bag (though I seem to remember the needles always stuck out) but we haven’t come across it in our culling as yet. I’m sure I’ve also got more knitting needles. I don’t want to buy more until I’ve checked properly but I could really be doing with a second set of 5.5mm.
- Thread catcher/pincushion. This is on my someday list. However, my Thursday sewing class has set a pincushion as a voluntary project this term, so I may just do it! I have some patterns.
- If I had loads of time, there is a bag I’d really like to make. S in class is making it and it’s fabulous.
