After that one sewing class, I decided to join in on the sew-along that's happening through the spring and summer online to accompany a new sewing book that was recently published. I'm thinking of it as my second sewing class. I'll be (theoretically) completing a new sewing project each week. This one was due Sunday, but Passover makes life a little complicated! So here I am, a little late.
Presenting my zig zag tote:
Okay, so let's also note: I attached the lining to the body in the wrong direction (there's a pocket in there, but you can't see it because I put it on the wrong side), and I attached the handles all backwards, too. Oops. Although, looking at that first photo, I like those cheery red flowers waving hi at me, even if they're supposed to be tucked on the inside. And, um, the whole thing isn't quite symmetrical. It's a little shorter on the left for some reason. I love its little wonky self so much.
And there are a million little details I could have done better, but I'm proud of this bag. I used all day long today and it didn't fall apart, so that's good, right?
By this coming Sunday, I'm going to make a cute little house-shaped pouch. Do you see those details? Circles. Curves. Another zipper. And more linen.
I'm in over my head with this sew-along. I think it's going to be fun.
