The capitalist bag, finally finished!

 English text below the photos :)

Was als "Stash Busting Project" begonnen hat, wurde zum UFO und ist heute eeeendlich fertig geworden! Juchu!
Das Abitur hat mich in den letzten Monaten an die Schulbücher gebunden... die Ergebnisse kriege ich am vierten Juni und ich bin schon ganz aufgeregt! Aber zurück zu meiner Tasche.
Wie im ersten Post der "capitalist bag" vorgewarnt, handelt es sich hier um mein erstes richtiges Näh-Projekt. Die ganze Geschichte könnt ihr natürlich auch gerne genauer nachlesen ;)

side 1: the lettering was more difficult than "Mickey" but I enjoyed both embroidery designs
side 2: isn't he cute :)
 Project: The Capitalist Bag
Pattern: Wendige Louisa
Fabrics: belonged to my Grandmother, she bought these in 1973
Started: March 2012
Finished: May 2012
Challenge: set by The Little Red Squirrel

with some fabric-leftovers I made this little clutch :)

What started being a Stash Busting Project became an UFO!
The general qualification for university entrance/school leaving examination kept me busy the last few months.
As I told you in my first "capitalist bag" post, it's my first "real" sewing-project ever and my grandmother bought the fabrics I used in 1973! So it was in her stash "a while" and in mine... well a year or so. But you can read the whole story here ;)
