My bead group had a challenge "Everything old is new again" and it really piqued my interest. I bought some old watch parts and got to embroidering. I am really happy with how it turned out. C&C welcome!
The round pieces on the sides are buttons.
There are sequins on the top right side and the bottom left side, so there is "flow"
Yes! i usually like zippers in the lining of my bags, but this one didn't have enough room. The inside pockets make up for the lack of zipper. This bag went together really quickly. I like having a place for my cell phone in the front. And I am glad I used a piece of ribbon for a zipper pull. Makes it easier to find the zipper pull, lol.
I started cutting this out and sewing on Friday, and finished it up by Saturday. That's almost instant gratification compared to the 2 week projects I've been doing lately! Joan's patterns have ingenius little tricks, and a great zipper instillation. I wanted to center a flower for the front, but moved my ruler by accident when I was cutting (oops!), so I used that as that as the back. I think it turned out great. What do you think?
I made this tote for my friend using the Professional Tote Pattern. There are a bagillion pieces to this tote pattern, lol. I was confused by the inside seam where the zippered pocket attaches to the sides, but once the light bulb went off and I understood the concept that it was ATTACHED, that helped a lot. I'm really happy with how it turned out. What do you think? C&C welcome!
