On the one hand there's more pressure not to make a mistake which might result in a slight redesign and I'm always a bit worried that my interpretation of what's in their heads might not match up to their expectations.
But on the other hand I get to take someone else's ideas and try making something perhaps a little bit different to the bags I usually make. And of course, they often involve choosing and buying more fabric!
So this week I finally finished the bag/s I made for Fiona. I just have to wait and see which one she wants. I figured her grey and pink colour combination would be popular, so whichever one she doesn't want will end up for sale in my shop.
And I've just started on a couple of round bottomed messenger bags based this style.

The purple one was sorted pretty quickly from some fabrics from my existing stash and using the same fabrics as a bag I'd made previously.
