All the usual design, so I won't bore you with description. I just wanted to show you in a different colorway.
I love these little polka dots. I wanted to stock up in the stripes, plaids and dots in each colorway in these basic nursery prints, but I have no idea what I'd ever do with all of them.
If I hadn't used those stripes for these pockets I wouldn't have had to make a second trip. You could argue if I hadn't bleached it in the first place I wouldn't have needed extra fabric. But then I would argue that they shouldn't have sold me fabric with arbitrary marks on it. Sooooo....yeah.
I think I'm all done with diaper bags for a little while. I have made the pink one above, this purple butterfly one, two in this blue and green color scheme, and two in Dr. Seuss. That's six diaper bags in about six weeks. Three of them I banged out in the last week alone--definitely more efficient but not as satisfying.
I wanted to make something nice and simple, but still a wee bit different than what I've been doing. I had completely forgotten that I had bought a Fortune Cookie Clutch purse kit a few months back, so I dove into that project. I had a bit of a cursing spree getting the second side into the frame and I poked a little hole in the fabric (I let the glue set too long and really had to fight with it) but this little pretty is all mine and I don't mind the little hiccups that only I know about.
I wish I knew how they figured out these kinds of patterns. The best I can do is make a pattern for the rectangular purse frames. I imagine it's kind of difficult, so I think I'm content to sit back and let others do the thinking.
The fabrics come in the kit--I was so excited when I saw the lining for this one was red and white polka dots.
I also finished up a purse for my cousin for her prom, but she won't have it until later this week and I don't want to share before she sees it. I'm quite pleased with my sewing progress. I got some shopping in, watched a cinematic adventure, did some knitting, and hung out with the sibs. I've had two excellent weekends in a row, and I wouldn't complain a lick if more of them want to keep coming my way.
