The Top Secret sewing project turns out to be a tote bag which I gave to Lisa yesterday for her birthday.
***** Happy Birthday Lisa! *****
The bag ended up a bit bigger and a bit more granny-ish than I had imagined, but overall I was pleased with it. I used French seams for a lovely neat finish without a lining, and I used the triple stitch setting on my machine for the first time. In other words, I found out what a triple stitch was and then was very pleased to see that my machine had it!
The triple stitching makes it really strong, but does use a lot of thread; hence the quick trip to the shop on Tuesday afternoon. If I hadn't run out of thread I would have finished it in 2 days. For the sort of thing which is usually described as a 2 hour project, that's pretty good going for me...
