As I was waiting for my sheets to dry last night (I had good intentions earlier in the day...but realized that I forgot about them in the washer as I was getting ready to collapse into my bed.) I got a little burst of energy and made a new bag.
I was off to my own little class today and needed something to carry all my things in. (Like I didn't have any other bags...but you know- new routines demand new bags.) I personally believe that One never actually needs an excuse for a new bag. I had ordered the polka dot fabric by mistake. I thought it would match some coordinating fabric for a baby sling that I am working on- but not so much. So what to do? I couldn't just leave it sitting there. I pieced it together with a vintage pillowcase (yellow flowers) and some blue shirting. I know it is a bit summery- but just allow me some time to complete my letting go process. No pattern, a complete original (can you tell that I am a total novice? I mean how hard is it to sew a square with handles?) I was quite impressed with my accurate measurements. If you know me you will also be impressed because I am not really a "details" kind of girl. Huh, for once late night sewing was productive!
