Modified KwikSew pattern #3749 in Amy Butler's "Love."
The close-ups actually do more justice to the bag as you can't see too much of the detail due to the busy print.
There's that lovely rounded bottom and a side view of some pleated loveliness.
Open or closed this zipper is pretty nifty looking (pats self on back).
I invested in a purse zipper for this project. The longer pull lets you put pretty fabric through it and is easier to get ahold of.
It is definitely a lot of work to give the people what they want, but it's always better to have happy customers who are getting exactly what they want. My favorite aspect of this little bag-making venture so far is that everyone likes something different. I get to try out different fabric combinations I wouldn't think of or actually get to make what I'm envisioning as it will have a home rather than hanging on the coat rack in the spare room.
And what about the aspirin? I've gone and injured my neck. Sometimes I get a kink in it if I've slept funny or did something not quite right in an exercise class. But this one takes the cake. I pulled it while brushing my teeth. Yes, by essentially standing still I've gone and gotten a stiff neck for a few days. Oh, the glamour...
