I can not believe I have finished my bag in two and a half days. I think the heatwave helped as no one visited and it was too hot for house work.
It was just me, my sewing machine the fur kids and Pat. Plus the DVD player as there was nothing of interest on the TV.
Lets take a look at my bag.
Today I started off by making the binding and pinning it to the sides and sewing it on. This was a bit on the fiddly side sewing the corners. But once I remembered the bag wasn't breakable and started pulling and shoving then bag under the walking foot, all went well.
After the binding was on, it was time for the small pockets. These are sewn on last and then all that was left was to sit in front of another DVD (as Pat was watching a movie) and do the hand sewing side of the binding.
I keep thinking this pocket is my favourite and then when I see the other side......
I think this is my favourite side. Love how the binding has just tidied up all those raw edges so well.
I used my fav colour green for the side pockets.
For a couple of appliqued pockets that stared back at me for most of last year and after 2.5 days of working on it, I can now put items in there to be left for sewing days. I am wondering why it took me so long to complete it.
That's one item I can cross off my white board. Now onto the next item.
