Quilted treasure bag
Yay! Whiplash is here again! The thing I love about Whiplash is that it gets me going on projects I might not otherwise have made time for. I have been wanting to make a bag out of some of these fabrics for some time and here it is. This week was rife with challenges and sewing this proved to be necessary therapy and a break in my mind from the things I didn't really want to think about. I intended to do a tutorial but the further I got in this project, the more I realized that I sew the way I cook and I know I will end up where I want to be, but explaining how I got there is not always very clear to those not living in my brain. I love the sight of M, running about town, with her bag on her back. I found one of her purses in my bag the other day and it tickled me to open it up and discover the items of such importance that she was compelled to carry them around with her. I love to find her purses and bags around and dig through for a peek. She loves her bag and I love that she loves her bag. I love all these fabrics and have really been itching to get something made out of them. I guess I will enter this in the "fancy" category for Whiplash because it was a bit involved and the details , like these little ends to her drawstring, while not truly fancy, are afforded a bit of extra effort to make this a bit more special. Maybe its skill though, since I made the pattern up and that took some skills. Either way, I am happy to say that it turned out just as I wanted. L is already going through the shelf of fabrics to pick his out so I can get started on his bag. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
