Jenny Bag and Sitcom Chic Progress

I finished the purse I made for my friend’s birthday, lined and everything! I designed it myself as I went along, I’ll try and add a pattern eventually. I have lots of pattern making to get caught up on these days! I knit the purse in Bernat Satin in blue and brown on size 8 needles, and I used some cotton animal print fabric for the lining and hand-stitched it in. I just got my grandmother’s awesome sewing machine, but I need some practice before actually MAKING something with it. Anyways, I love how the purse ended up – so here are some pics:

As for progress on Sitcom Chic, I’m done the body part and one sleeve. I’m about 1/4 done the second sleeve now, and it’s looking great! Here are some pics so far:

That’s the detail of the subtle wasitline detailing I added to the pattern, I hope it turns out!

Let me know what you think about the purse!
