I've been very distracted. There's a totally new, fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants sewing venture that's in the works right now. I cast on a new sweater this morning and I've been seriously researching ANOTHER new crafty obsession that may come to fruition.
But then there's these bags! The reversible one I showed you yesterday came together in about two days and then this one I'm about to show you was conceived, planned, cut and sewn all in one day.
This bag reminds me of my sister. Yellow is her favorite colour and I believe that blue like this is second on her list. It's a fun and energetic bag, like my sister, but still totally functional, like what she needs with two kids and a baby. The pleating was the new skill that I tried out with this one and they totally worked. I adore it! It's not 100% perfect though, as I did make a pretty critical error right at the end. It's also not lined, but the fabric is the same canvasy type that I used in the last bag that's heavy enough to stand alone. I made the handles longer and wider and I'm much happier with them than I am with the last ones.
I have the contents of my next Christmas sweater projects in here for the photo. I totally didn't carry it to the doctor's office or anything. Muwahahaha. If Meli likes this bag I have enough fabric to make her another one. And this time I'd probably set in the handles before the very last step so I don't have to fight with the bag and the sewing machine to sew over the gigantic side seams.
