About metteks

I have often been asked, why I don't have a blog as a sew and make so many things. After years of rejecting, I have finally given in and here it is. My name is Mette and I live in the Kolding - Vejle area of Denmark. I work as a schoolteacher, teaching mathematics, science and craft. As many other sewists I have cats, which are keen to help holding down the fabric as I lay out the patterns.

Bag

Standard

bag

This bag is made entire out of fabric samples, which is why the colours go so well together.

Earlier I had made another bag from the same pattern, but it was worn down as I used the bag for work, carrying around books for teaching.

I used this pattern from warehouse fabric. The only alteration is that I arranged the pleats different for match up with the stripes.
