I am off early tomorrow morning to spend the weekend in Toowoomba with friends. Two days stitching and I hope to get my bunnies well under way in that time.
And I am still making bags. I really like the shape of this bag. I am now up to about the 10th version and still have some other ideas for it.
If I don't piece the fabric but just use one piece for the outside and another for the lining I can cut it out and have it made up in 20 minutes. So this is the 20 minute bag. (I did have to rush to get it done in that time and there is a tutorial in a separate post.)
I would prefer to take a little longer and get every bit accurate and I didn't top stitch the zipper opening in that time which I did with this version.
It is a great sewing bag as my dressmaking scissors sit perfectly along with glasses and all those other odds and ends. I have used a heavier lining in this one and am not sure it is the best choice. It looks alright from a distance but top stitching the zipper was difficult and I couldn't achieve an even top stitch. There were so many different weights of fabric in this bag and they were all fighting one another. Shame It is a nice bag.
Now I am about to attempt a re-purposed version. I ironed the piece and have been looking at it all day. I just CAN'T cut into it!!
