I actually finished something

May 6, 2012 § 11 Comments

I started this bag back in January during I class that I taught at work.  But I got stumped when I got to the zipper. I couldn’t find the right zipper in the right color & the right right size.  All I could find was a separating zipper which I thought I could tweak to make it work. But between being tired all the time and fighting the mono I just couldn’t think. So I put it off to the side in a pile to finish at a later date.  Since I have another bag class coming up I figured I’d better get going on this one.

The zipper still isn’t right. I finally figured out a solution while I was laying in bed after I had already finished the bag. Oh well. Better luck next time.  I also used heavy weight interfacing on the outside instead of the fusible fleece that the pattern recommends.  But overall, I happy with it.  It’s going to be a great project bag. Most likely a knitting project bag. Lord knows I have enough knitting projects in mid-process  for every project bag I own.

Stats

Pattern – Amy Butler Sophia Carry-all Bag

Fabric – Hoffman’s Mercer Street Butterflies for the bag, the handles were a Joel Dewberry fabric, and the lining I really don’t remember

Pose – inspired by Dottie Angel
