It has been a year since I started out on the crafty adventure I like to call Kitchen Table Sewing. To celebrate the fun it has given me, I am giving away a specially made by me bag to one of my readers. (Ha, ha. I think it sounds funny saying that, as I am not sure I have any readers as such, if by that I am referring to people who make a habit of reading my waffle, and don't like to ever miss an instalment. Like subscribers to The Economist, The Times or Private Eye. Oh, and add to that, Kitchen Table Sewing, please. He, he.)
At about the same time as I started the blog, I began teaching sewing classes. My inspiration to teach people how to sew came to me the morning after a sewing night with friends. It was after a night where I'd been showing them how to make a Mini Boden style dress that I realised how much I enjoyed teaching people how to sew. I talked the idea through with my husband Mark, who encouraged me to go for it.

So, a bit about the bag I am giving away.
This is the bag I teach complete beginners how to make, and it is based on the lovely Anna of Noodle-head's tutorial.
