A New Project Bag

I have turned my stitched piece (shown last blog entry) into a project bag. The instructions for the finishing were from Karen of Sew Much 2 Luv and were part of the chart. This piece was a collaboration between Karen and Cathy of Hands on Design. The finishing went fairly smoothly although I did french seams rather than serge. Not sure I'd do that again as it added too much bulk to the seams. And....... after almost 50 years of sewing, I was humbled by a major faux pas......I sewed the piece for the inside pocket to the wrong end and wound up with it upside down and not useable. Sadly, I found this out too late to fix!!! But, I am very happy with how it turned out and can't wait to put a new project in it! Oops--I forgot to add a zipper pull but I'll get right on that!

Here is my progress on And They Sinned:

I feel like I'm stalling out--have to keep motivated!!! I started another small piece to give myself a break...maybe that will re-energize me!!! I've only got one section after this one left!

Thanks for stopping by and your "twisted threads" of friendship!
