everyone's bags look so great!  i need to take a picture of the awesome shoulder bag that girl a made me.  i'm waiting for her to recieve my bag before i show what i made her. i'm nervous about my bag, it really, really, really didn't go according to plan.

don't worry! swaps are supposed to be fun!  Wink  i'm sure i'll like it. i know ALLL about how difficult some fabrics can be, anyway.  i know it make not look like it, but that fabric gave me fits too!  the thread had difficulty going through it and so it snagged on me and messed up my bobbin and jerked my spool and snapped at the needle MULTIPLE times.  plus i messed up the placement of the magnetic closure once and had to turn it upside down and hide that part in the seam...  see now ya made me tell all my secrets!  Grin

you're kidding!  it doesn't look like you had any trouble at all, it seems flawless to me.  i had the snagging, jerking spool BS, too.  how'd you fix that?  i think i might've sealed in a few curse words with my seams, doh!

I can tell you, Fall is composed of

1 part dead fish smell
1 part wet leaves
1 part arctic chilled air (not winter chilled variety)
2 parts crunchy walking
a pinch very cold rain
some apples you picked yourself
a few very still moments
a good deal of inner reflection

scouts honor!  I changed my needle, which helped A LOT, should done that BEFORE i had to rip out two seams (yes, two!) and sewed at a very moderate pace.  if i went even slightly fast my spool jerked and my thread snapped.  if you look on the strap you can see where i had to start again. besides all the wobbly stitching cos i can sew a straight seam to save my life!  Grin  so mine only LOOKS flawless  Wink

oh gosh ladies you have no idea how mush reading about your problems with  these amazing looking bags has helped me! I've been hiding and feeling so guilty about not getting it done and out on time because of some of the same problems you have all listed! But it's done and will be sent Monday! I'm standing up stating this before everyone here! So it will be done! Thanks for sharing your trials and tribulations so publicly! You've all made me feel better.
