Wonder woman bag for my neighbour


Inside of bag

Inside of bag

I made this bag as a gift for my lovely neighbour, Mandy. She’s a great friend and I don’t know what I’d do without her. Without her the whole street would be a less friendly and cheery place to live. Her straight talking manner, her sense of humour and concern for everyone is something to admire. She’s one of life’s beautiful people; beautiful on the inside as well as the outside.

The bag pattern was bought from Chris W Designs, I’d recommend her bag patterns, they are cleverly designed so they can be printed on A4 paper and the PDF instructions are clear and easy to follow. ¬†

The finished microscope dust cover

I have finished the microscope dust cover, or microscope cosy as I like to call it.

Here are some pictures of it being modelled on my Nikon S. It looks a little large because it was made for a taller  trinocular AO Scope not the Nikon.

I’m rather pleased with it although I did too much fancy stitching which took a lot of time. In future I shall make rather less elaborate microscope cosies.
