Shopping bag finished

Shirley shopper with removable decoration
I was having lunch with a good friend some time ago and she admired my new shopper so I said I would make her one too.  Well that was earlier this year so I just had to make her one soon ....  Anyway, this is the shopper which has expanding sides and a removable Christmas medallion just for fun on black and silver glittery ribbon.  I will give it to her on Saturday a bit late for Christmas shopping but it might come in handy for the sales...............

Its a bit more sophisticated than the photo looks because it does up with a clasp at the top for security and also inside are one very deep pocket and another for a mobile or glasses, so it took me quite a while to make.  The handles are extra thick and soft so they won't cut into hands when the bag is loaded and they are long enough to go on the shoulder. The centre panel is pink not rosy red like the photo and its made with and lined with furnishing fabric so its good and strong, with a plastic insert along the bottom for extra strength. Well that's it for today, I still have some sewing left to do so if it doesn't get done tonight there is always tomorrow.

Same to you for 2012. We went to Cockermouth yesterday and were pleased with the way all seems back to normal in the main street. Hope to complete the postings, it is quite hard to remember to do them and also to find a picture. Don't know if I will do it again....
