This weekend, I finished up a purse in some black french country fabric with a yellow floral for the liner – it turned out really well, and I gave it to Lizzie at church this morning, just to realize that I FORGOT to take a picture of it!!! It was fun working with fabric that I don’t normally work with, and you’ll just have to take my word that it was wildly cute.
The mystery project from last week was (drumroll please, and if your name is Beki, stop reading now if you haven’t gotten your package) …
A diaper bag! I made this one out of Amy Butler’s Sunbloom fabric and lined it with canvas. This project would have been completed much earlier had a little guy not gotten a hold of Mommy’s scissors and cut at the fabric mid-way through the process. Grrrrr. Mommy was not happy. It took some creativity to salvage some fabric.
The bag looks a bit lopsided in the picture, but it really IS symmetrical! I promise! The cell phone in my current tote bag has fallen out of it’s cell pocket at the most inopportune times (like, when I’m trying to leave the check out lane and my little guy throws his shoe on the floor and I lean over to pick it up and out falls my cell phone…more grrrr), so I added a velcro strap to this one to keep it in it’s place.
This is one of the first times I’ve sewn for somebody who knows how to sew and I was NERVOUS! I kept wondering if she’d notice such and such an imperfection, or if she’d know she could do this or that better. This is for a almost due Beki over at Artsy-Craftsy Babe. Enjoy Beki – I hope you like it! Making this was a fun adventure!
