My mum has sewn ever since she was a little girl. Whilst I have dabbled and made the odd thing, I didn't really take it up as a hobby until a couple of years ago (I'm now 27).
It started with a trip to The Bramble Patch, during which I fell in love with Aneela Hoey's 'Sherbert Pips' line. I purchased a charm pack and a pattern for a simple tote bag and I made this lovely thing:
That puppy riding on the back of the scooter still makes me smile :-)
This bag is certainly well used (please ignore the dirt!) and is often complimented. So thanks Aneela for getting me into sewing (and costing me an absolute fortune...)!
