I spent a lot of yesterday sewing. I LOVED it! The pattern planning, cutting out, pinning, sewing, clipping seams, pressing seams and so on. I enjoyed every minute of it!
Sewing used to be an almost all-the-time thing for me. If I wasn't reading I was sewing. Computers have a lot to answer for! However, I found the pattern for this bag online so I suppose that's something good about them.
And I have made some fantastic friends online from all over the world so computers aren't such a bad thing really. I just need to manage my time better so I can compute AND sew! So, yes, ignore that remark about computers having a lot to answer for! :oD
Anyway, see what I made yesterday!
I changed the pattern I found online as I didn't like the way it looked - there would have been a seam right down the middle of the main part of the bag and, with the fabric I was using, that would have looked ridiculous!
I'm treating this one as a prototype and will change the pattern some more. The handles, for example are way too wide and I think some padding is called for - the bag is way too floppy. But that's the fun of making things - change things around a wee bit and you make it unique!
Oh, and for any of my computer friends reading this - please note the books in the bookcase - Photoshop rules! LOL
