My Weekend Sewing Project

Not sewing for this weekend, but from last weekend. I was just in the mood to make a bag of some sort (since bags are my vice), and I had come across this pattern in earlier blog reading and decided to go for it. Now I'll ask that you forgive the photography - I was impatient so I decided to use the flash.

The bag ended up taking me most of the day on Monday. I wasn't exactly planning on that, but oh well - what else shall one do with a holiday?

I'm glad to say there were no mishaps, such as me cutting fabric to the wrong dimensions or sewing anything backwards. In fact, I only got stumped a bit at the end for the putting-it-all-together part. The confusion just took some careful reading to get sorted out.

I am very happy with how the project turned out as a whole. Sorry I don't have any modeled shots, just the one of the bag hanging on a nail.

Side note: my apartment has TONS of nails in the walls. Either the previous dwellers had a lot of art or no one who has lived here previously can agree on where art should be hung. So silly.

For my next project I REALLY want to make this toiletry/box bag. I already have great fabric for it, but I need to get some medium weight interfacing and a green zipper. Oh how I love green.

You have all been rather quiet out there in blog-land, what are you up to?
