My First Custom Order

Yipeeeeee...I've finally made some money from sewing. My friend ordered one of these to give to her friend as a birthday present. It's a drawstring bag for putting campervan thermal window mats in.... And I received real money for making it!!!
Though the fabric is a lovely design, it wasn't cotton and frayed like mad and so I did a French seam to make it last a bit longer. It was also quite difficult to photograph, so I strung it from the washing line!
Please ignore the ladder and the Canadian canoe and look at the pretty pink Camellia instead!

Linking up with Le Challenge....who's theme this month was order. I had several ideas as the theme left it open wide, but this one fitted the best. Amazingly the word order came up in two blog titles next to each other in Bloglovin! Nicole from Follow the White Bunny was blogging about the Order to stitch things in an embroidery, she has lots of interesting stuff, so pop over and take a look.
