I'm not sure if it's this particular print, the dash of red, or what, but every time I glance at this one I get a little "Oh!" sort of thought flitting through my brain. The colors are just so classic, and the floral not an "old lady" floral. Side note: I apologize to any old ladies reading this. I use the term "old lady floral" a bit, and I mean nothing derogatory by it. I use it strictly as an objective fabric pattern term.
The pleats on this one came out with a bit more oomph than usual. I made it as I always do, but these would not succumb to the iron and are thus much more flirtatious and feminine. This is my favorite part of the bag to make. I adore pleats, and they're so simple and satisfying to pull off.
I remember that the first time I added this kind of pocket to a bag gusset it took me forever to figure out one. Now they're just like pshh, whatever. I now have a harder time remembering to make sure it's secure in the side seam when I stitch.
I swear that zipper pull is silver. The last time I ordered them I got matte silver instead of shiny. The matte photographs like bronze. That irks me to way too high a degree.
That single line of bias tape at the top of the slip pocket is my favorite part of this bag. There is something about that contrast that I just love. I have no idea why such a simple, silly thing should delight me so, but it does.
That's all I've got right now. I decided it would be a good idea to assembly-line produce three diaper bag orders I have. Two of them are repeats (see here and here), but the third is the sweetest pink and white thing ever. I've got the insides to whip up, and then the final stitch-together and they're done. I cannot WAIT to show you the wee girlie bag. Like so excited to show you I could squeal :)
Long weekends agree with me greatly. I don't wanna go to work tomorrow.
