I love the process of learning from my mistakes. I look at the first bag that I made and what I learned from it, so that I can apply it to the next. Every bag gets a little better than the one before it. What’s funny is that I made the first one in about an hour and each bag thereafter takes progressively longer. I think it’s because I tend to over-analyze everything. Bags included.
I have bemoaned the fact that I have SOOOOOO much fabric in my closet, in totes, in bags, and in baskets. I have to say, tho, it’s nice to be able to just sift through all of the colors and patterns on the floor of my sewing room in my jammies, rather than going to a fabric store.
This is my latest one. About 10″ tall by 11″ across the top, with a 6″ x 6″ square bottom. I really need to see about getting some beads with large holes. Tying knots in the ends of the drawstrings just doesn’t flip my skirt — just doesn’t seem to be finished.
I’m not sure what this bag’s assignment will be. The base is bigger, so maybe it would make a better lunch bag. Decisions, decisions…… But cute, eh? I love the little wagons with the bluebirds perched on them.
