April sewing part 2

Here is the Mandy Boat tee I made last week-

I like the shape and style BUT I am just not quite sure about the neckline. Most of the tees I have been making have lower/looser necklines, I can really just get the Mandy tee over my head, and can feel the tee sitting against my collarbone. Having said that, I have already cut out another one - but with a slightly wider and lower neckline.

I also FINALLY got around to making a new bag. I made a green and navy one last year
- which I use all the time, but since I tend to wear a lot of blue and green (and sometimes both together!) I really needed a similar bag but in another colourway. So I made this new one in black with a cute red & white polka dot lining.
I put a zip pocket inside, and made a new sunglasses cover and mini pencil case too- I had 2 days of PD in the city this week, so thought it would be nice to have a new bag to take! The pencil case will be handy to take to craft group too.

  1. Love the bag in particular! What pattern did you use for it?

    1. Thanks! According to the post I wrote last year when I made the blue & green bag, I used the free " market bag" pattern from Peppermint magazine...just as well I wrote about it because I had completely and utterly forgotten which ( if any ) pattern I used! Also the books " Sew what - bags" and " You sew girl" are very handy references when making bags.
