I have to tell you, cleaning up my messes used to be a lot easier. Now I have this little helper who feels it is her job to closely supervise the process. As you can see, she is moving quickly to be sure all is done correctly.
I'm not sure how I managed before I had her very able help, but somehow - it used to be a lot quicker.
I made this little bag with Nanette's pattern as a jumping off point. I made the fabric strips shorter, narrower and more numerous, and the handle a bit wider. It is of course a smaller bag, and I think it turned out rather well.
As you can see, it has passed the Chloe test. She has given it her seal of approval. After all her hard work with fabric selection, cutting and every phase of construction, the finished product has her approval.
