I am totally supposed to be vacuuming and cooking right now to get ready
for a dinner guest, but I just had to share this with you.
I finished my bag! and who knew the whole experience would
treat me to such spiritual life lessons:
Belief - that I could actually read these directions and
figure this out without help
Trust - in Ms. Butler and associates that this pattern works
Tolerance - when my partner asked me "how many
bags do you need?"
Patience - every time I picked up my seam ripper
Confidence - in using my ten year old fusible interfacing
Self Awareness - I SO make things harder than they are, and
I talk to myself out loud a lot while sewing
Dream realizations - it was before awakening yesterday
morning that I figured out how to put the handles on.
Joy - when things actually fit together
Satisfaction - I love it even though up close it doesn't look quite like the picture.
More on trust, I still don't believe the handles and the interfacing would have worked out if I
hadn't mirrored the pairs first before putting the interfacing on.....
I customized my inside pockets a bit by making three on one side
to hold smaller things like my new Electrify phone :-0
Seriously with the button loop thing. Awesome technique but I couldn't figure
the worded directions out. Renee had to come and make it visual.
My finished bag, with it's vintage button and all that.
I have decided to make it my "briefcase". Everything fits and
is organized. Yeah!
Enjoy your Sunday
