I tucked myself away in the sewing room for as long as I could yesterday (if only cooking and eating didn’t take up so much time I’d have more time to sew!) Sometimes I think my sewing room is a time warp. I walked in there around 1:30 and couldn’t believe that it was 5:00 when I walked out. I also discovered that I was hungry and thirsty once I left the room, but didn’t notice it at all when I was sewing, does this happen to you when you are being creative?
I started by making this Small Satchel. It is a Keyka Lou pattern. It is the first of their patterns that I have tried and I love it. It was super easy and the instructions were very well written. I am really happy with the final result.
Try as I might, I could not get the seam lines to be centered on the bag the way that I wanted (the seams on the pants weren’t straight to begin with….grr…) Do you think it matters? I was thinking maybe a fabric flower on the right would add a little pizzaz to the bag and help it not look so unbalanced. Suggestions?
While in a recycling mood I decided to make another sweater friend. I have always loved this grey sweater and thinks it looks great as a pig. I added the contrasting ears and nose to this one just for something different.
