........send me my blocks!
With the Labour Day holiday, the mail has been really slow to arrive, and I didn't get the Simply Solid blocks I was hoping for.....darn!
I wanted to work on the quilt this week-end.
Instead, I decided to make a new bag for winter.
Well, actually, it is going to be a practice bag!
The pattern is fairly advanced, and a bit above my "pay grade", when it comes to bag making.
So, I need to do a trial run.
On Friday I cut out all the pieces, and added the interfacing. I couldn't get any of the recommended products for the interfacing, so I did the best I could with what's available!
Today, I sewed....all day......and completed the outer shell with minimal issues! I was so stoked!!!!
Maybe it doesn't have to be a trial bag!
I really should have stopped there.....
I just had to do one more thing....
My plan was to just put in the zippered pockets in the lining. I have done these before with no problems at all. So, these went in really easily, and I thought they looked great!
Yay for me, right?
Did I mention that I should have stopped earlier??
yeah, well, I'll listen to my inner voice next time......
So, here I am picking out stitches so that I can reuse the zippers.
And, to punish myself for being a complete dork and wasting all that fabric from the lining and pockets!
I completely blame the Postman.
None of this would have happened if he had just delivered my blocks!
