I'm nearly done. And this is actually a considerable feat given the circumstances: my sewing machine wasn't working and I had to assemble the bag entirely by hand, and in a terrible rush! Now I just need to add some finishing touches and a few more stitches here and there:
Doesn't the bag look sweet with the drawstrings pulled?
But I wonder if I did a good job matching the two fabrics with the embroidery threads... Anyway, if any of the students isn't pleased with these colours there will be a second colourway to choose from. I'm looking forward to trying this one out too.
