    Default My Half Term Project

    I wanted a leather satchel - loads of the girls I teach have them - and decided to make one from a kit I ordered at the Farnborough craft show in February. It was from a company called the Simple Way, which I think have been on C&C. I'm really pleased with the result, although my fingers are sore from using waxed thread. Haven't seen one in these colours in the shops!

    I love satchels! Must be from when I went to grammar school and had to have one for all the books. They do seem very popular at the moment and I've see kits to make them. You'll be the envy of all the pupils taking that to school CSF! Love the colours too.

    That's really lovely CSF, I always wanted a satchel when I was at school and eventually Mum & Dad sent one to Santa one year, I was so proud of it, used to polish it regularly with saddle soap !!

    If anyone else fancies making one the colour scheme I chose was cobalt blue and lipstick! I had a longish wait before I got the kit because of the difficulty of getting the blue leather - I could have had navy earlier, but I hung on for the cobalt! It's easy enough to assemble as it is only running stitch - but it took me 4 days because my fingers needed to recover from pulling on the stiff waxed thread . Sewing the handle on was the fiddliest bit as it meant working inside the bag. But the kit was very well made and pretty well idiot proof!

    Brilliant CSF, I didn't realise you could buy kits for satchels and lovely colour too.
