Today I find myself in a bit of a quandry..I have a finish, kind of.
That is to say, I have finished sewing my newest design, but I still have to finish the pattern.
This has developed into the hardest part of pattern making. Right now I've got 5 patterns written up with pictures of the finished product. But so far only 1 pattern has the how to photos to go with the instructions, and while minion 1 didn't mind taking those while I worked (ok, ok, so I bribed him..I would have had to pay a pro 10x what I paid him hehe)Now that he has a steady, I'm not sure it will be so easy to get him off his cell long enough to repeat the process once, let alone another 5 times.
So with the hopes that this will count as a finish, here's my newest bag design, Joy:
I just love the quilt-y goodness..I still can't believe the difference having the correct foot makes when it comes to doing free motion! I just always thought I couldn't do it ;)
She can have her sides tied tightly together for 1 look, or loosely for another..Don't worry, the gathered sides keep her from seeming too boxy either way!
Oh..and did I mention the pockets inside?!?! She has 12 (!) counting a credit card pocket stashed behind a side pocket, and 3 pen pockets.
The only bad thing about Joy is that since I made her in the scrumptious Be Merry fabrics (Riley Blake Designs)that inspired her design, I can't carry her yet! Well, I probably could, but I think that would be rushing winter a bit ;)
