Red blue stripes

Afternoon all

Well I have been playing with my sewing machine today

Making a zipper bag.....and a wee bag

Not sure I have the right technique yet but it has been fun. 

The main problem has been how to sew in a zip from a continuous zip. 

Not done that before. 

I have been using up some of my ribbon stash to make the designs. 

So here is the wee bag the one without the zip. 

This is how the zip comes ....  !!!!

I would like to enter it for the following 


Well I have used red in the ribbon for this challenge so hope 
it meets the criteria Not sure if it meets Valentine but will give it a go. 

Maybe could add a few chocolates inside to give on Valentines day? 

I really have enjoyed doing something different today.

Will post my other bag at another time. 

Thank you for popping in today and I look forward to 
seeing you again. 

Best bring in the washing as there are black clouds in the sky 
not sure if we will get snow but they are talking about it.

Take care and see you soon
