But . . . this time I stitched in time!
I always pick out fabric with high hopes. Then when I cut, I think . . . "what was I thinking."
This day was no different. I didn't like the direction of the fabric and was worried it was going to be a bad scene in the end. I was fretting over the fact that I had laminated the inside pieces, but left the outside pieces unlaminated (which I don't think is a word).
But putting that aside, My first pieces to make were the holders inside the bag. I was upset that the words went horizontal on the short sides, but vertical on the long sides (who made up this pattern?). Eh . . . not my fault.
But as I started piecing it together . . . the pieces that were just fabric and interfacing and laminate and zippers and thread came together in the end . . . (although sorry to say there was a bit of swearing), numerous missed stitches and scrunched up areas (that's like my signature on things I sew).
Horizontal or vertical . . . my fabrics came together quite nicely (what the heck did I do all that worrying about). And check out the end of the zipper (where it stops) and the little zipper pull!
There was something in the air yesterday. It was a banner day. A project started on Saturday (with laminating and cutting in preparation for the class) and finished on Sunday. O.K., so it was just a little lunch bag. But it has a zipper . . . and some "holders" on the inside for a bottle/can and utensils. And in the end . . . it's transporting lunch . . . nothing more . . . nothing less.
Loved the bag . . . the lemon Chobani . . . not so much!
