I dashed outside today to check the mail, and it was so sunny and bright that I thought I should get a picture of my new bag, out there in the wild :D She couldn't decide which spot she liked best - my garage door ...
... or tucked onto my neighbour's Christmas tree (outside ready for town pick-up) :D
This was a new to me project - as I mentioned in my last blog post I'm trying to make NEW designs of bags this year - I'm aiming for 1 new bag a week (aka 52 in 16) to finally get to some of the tutorials and patterns I've been hoarding for so long :D This tutorial is from Sew Can She, and is called a 2 Sided Zip. The tutorial is VERY well written and photographed - I was nervous about making it because of the curved zipper but it was no problem - the bag was very easy to make. Next time around I'll add an inch in length and in height to make it a bit bigger (and of course will use a longer zipper). I'll definitely be making more of these - thank you to Caroline for a wonderful tute! And this counts in as 2/52/16 ... HA!
P.S. Sheila Perl - I can't reply to your comments as I can't find your email address - could you leave it for me in a reply (I'll delete it before publishing) or email me through my About Me link - I'm dying to check out your Pinterest boards (and your blog, too, if you have one?) - thank you! :)
