I went out of my sewing comfort zone with the latest two projects. First, I sewed the "Bohemian Carpet Bag" by SewLiberated, which I lovingly call my "Mary Poppins Bag"; which was my first non-PDF bag pattern I ever bought, and first one which uses a bag-frame (SO AWESOME!). The pattern was a little trickier than some others I've used, but I managed to get through it and I am very pleased with my new bag!!! It is a great one for weekends, has a zippered pocket big enough for papers or a laptop, a pouch in there for a tablet and two extras for wallets and things, as well as a key fob thinggy. The straps are super sturdy, and it even has little bag feet!!! So great. I love that the bottom stays square with a fabric-covered foam board insert. It took almost two days though, but maybe only cause it was my first time.
Bit of Nostalgia... and the bag!
Whats next for travel stories? Shall I tell about the upcoming weekend trip to Southampton? That one definitely calls for the Mary Poppins bag!! or maybe Greece;)? Maybe you'll have to put up with a few more sewing posts before... we'll see.
And hurrah for the Droste Effect! Too bad the bad resolution only allows for 3 recursions...
