Sew together, stay together

A friend of mine asked me when I was going to blog again. She said that Charlie was cute, but……. she needed something new to look at. Haha! He is pretty cute, but I can understand needing a change of scenery.
Not much has been going on around here. Or at least nothing very blog worthy. My rib is getting better every day. Nearly well, in fact. Now, if the weather would cool off a little! It has been the hottest, driest summer I can remember since moving here. If we don’t get out and do something early in the morning, well, we just don’t do much.
I haven’t been doing much sewing either. What is wrong with me? I had big plans to get so many things done this summer. And since our bicycle crash… Nothing.
Although, when my friend, Letty, received a Sew Together Bag in a swap, I was finally bitten by the bug to make one for myself. I can see now why people have been so excited about this bag. It’s pretty easy to make and so fun to use!
I used fusible fleece instead of interfacing for the outside, which made the binding a teeny bit harder to apply. And the only thing I wish I would have done differently is to buy a longer zipper for the outside. Maybe that would allow the bag to open up just a bit more. Other than that, I am quite happy with this little bag.
It’s now keeping together the parts to a new English paper piecing project. Because… you just can have too many WIP’s, right?
