Check one off the old sewing bucket list. I made a Sew Together Bag!
I’ve always wanted to make one of these–and almost did a couple of years ago, except the funny thing about that story is that it ends with me
lighting the bag on fire deconstructing an almost-finished project. I got to the part where you attach the binding (one of the final steps), and somehow got mascara on my white binding (I DON’T EVEN KNOW). I couldn’t get it off, so I did what any normal person would do and sliced it up into scraps. Naturally. (To answer your question, yes, I am aware I could have opted to rip the binding off instead but did not do so because I am a start-over-rather-than-rip-a-single-seam kind of sewist–or I was at 2 a.m. that night. To each his own.)
Two years down the road and I finally tried again–took me a little while to recover, clearly.
This time around, no mishaps. I had so much fun picking fabric and constructing this bag. The only problem I have now is that I love it so much I’m too scared to use it.
That’s all from me for today. I’m off to go do some more making!
