Here is a photo of my creation. If you remember I wrote a few weeks back about this challenging fabric and what I might possibly create with it and make use of in my lifetime. I really do not have time lately to sew something that is of no use to me and that I think was my biggest challenge. I would never wear this fabric, decorate my home with this fabric or give whatever I made to a friend or at least a good friend. Or that is what I originally thought anyway.
I created this fun bag using a pattern from Lisa Lam’s book entitled, The Bag Making Bible and although I tweaked it a bit here and there, it essentially came from her pattern. I added two additional fabrics to my creation and I honestly love it and will use it on my next trip. I talked about the bag being given to my daughter and yes I am still tossing around that idea but for now I will just admire it and decide later.
This challenge was a blast and I want to Thank a couple of great gals and everyone else involved with the project from the bottom of my heart. I have not sewn anything for myself for ages. This is what the American Sewing Guild and it’s members is all about and I am so glad I joined in the fun!
