My New Tote Bag - Thanks Caroline

First of all my apologies, I haven't blogged for ages I haven't even visited the craft forum for weeks. I have been busy though, I am writing a series of e-books to compliment my website.This has left me hardly any time do actually do much craft work.
I had a fibro flare a few weeks back and decided I'd better try and get the e-books I have planned written before another bad flare comes a long.

Enough about me I had to tell you about my new tote bag that Caroline from Redneedle Sewing made for me.
Have a look at Caroline's shop Redneedle on Folksy she has some gorgeous items for sale.

I have had to use a wheelchair to go shopping for over 3 years now. I have been looking for a pretty shopping bag that would fit nicely over the handles of the wheel chair.
You would think that would be easy, well think again. I had almost given up when I saw the tote bag on  Caroline's blog

After a few emails back and forth Caroline was able to make the bag in the most gorgeous fabric for a very reasonable price. The bag is lined and has an internal pocket and and outside pocket.The nicest thing is she was able to redesign it so the handles are on the side, they fit over the handles on the wheel chair and the bag isn't all twisted like all the other shopping bags I've seen.

The photo isn't great but the bag is perfect.Thanks again Caroline from one very happy customer.

I'm having a break from writing so I hope to have some of my own makes to show you next week. I'm off to Wendy's blog to check out all the other Handmade Monday posts. If you love crafts do join me as you will find loads of lovely makes and crafty stories.
