the pattern it looks more like a cute bowling bag-like purse but because I messed up somewhere (still trying to figure that one out) it is a little squatty looking. Oh well.. It is still a super functional purse that doesn't look 1/2 bad.
Everything always looks better if you throw a filter over the photo :) Here is what I learned from this project:
- I need to do a MUCH better job of transferring those funny little markings from the pattern to the fabric
- My sewing machine is not a fan of 12 layers of fabric especially when 4 of those are faux leather
- If you have really cool one-of-a-kind vintage fabric wait to use it on a pattern you have made before and you know you love
- I need to refresher course in sewing!
On the home front, today was an awesome day. Shopping, Chick-fil-a, and the park were all included! Here is a pic of the new "Bubble Generator"
The inventor of this toy is my new hero! Tomorrow is a cookout and cleaning around the house!
