Weekender bag #2

Will I ever make this bag again?!? Oh, after this, I sure don't know.

Weekender bag #2:
-exterior and lining: Michael Miller dumb dots laminated cotton

-pocket lining, trim & handles: Moda laminated cotton

-special additions: brown webbing attached to sides with u-ring to attach shoulder straps.


I've got to stop choosing fabrics that are really hard to work with. It gets discouraging fast. I also had to experiment with needles. In the end, the #16 seemed to work the best. The Moda fabric was easy to sew through compared to the Michael Miller. I have enough of the Moda left over for a coordinating make-up bag or something.

Oh! Doesn't it look so professional though? It looks wonderful, I can't imagine that the fabric was easy, but it sure doesn't look like you had a hard time with it... it looks perfect!

That is too, too awesome! My inner Rain Man loves how you lined up the dots. After all, that's what they're for, right???
