Finished this earlier in the week after staying up waaaay to late. I only had to sew the lining to the outer shell and thought, ‘oh just this one more thing’ but then I entered the fuzzy area of sleepy sewing mistakes and was slowed down. What would have taken about 15 minutes in the morning when I was well rested too about an hour. BUT I do love it and the end result is super cool. I’m so proud to wander around with a bag I hand made with fabrics I chose. Now finally when people ask, ‘oh did you make that?’ I can say ‘yep!’
Here’s my bag as of the other day, I was so excited to get this far and wanted to keep going but I realized I needed 1 more piece of interfacing. A piece that happened to be something huge like 15×35, soooo it hasn’t gotten any closer to done. Then my hubby went away for the weekend and took the camera. Then I was just plain lazy this week apparently and haven’t gotten to posting until now :)
I love the 80’s feel of it with the little coloured hearts and fun apple print, can’t wait to finish.
Still lagging behind the group’s schedule on this one BUT I did manage to get all my pieces cut out. I’ve got 2 bags on the go right now, both of which I’m supposed to be sewing with a someone else but I keep thinking, ‘oh I’ll just do one more step’. I’m just too itchy to do a new to me project right now. So here’s what I’ve got so far.
And a closer view of my prints.
I’m going to go sew the pleats, just the pleats.
