A couple of days ago I started a post with photos of a set of bags I had completed from a bag of scraps I had in stash. Today I sat down to finish the post, and as I usually do, I saved it frequently while I was working on it. Strangely, I couldn't open a preview page, even though the screen showed that the saves WERE saving. I hit publish, and apparently that caused black holes to form in the universe, because despite all the saving I did - Blogger erased all of my saved edits
, sending the page back to the original few sentences and one picture. Can't tell you how much I appreciate that, Blogger - I'm sure someone is chortling at their desk right now, enjoying my annoyance :D
Rather than redoing the post - which - obviously - would have been the Best. Post. Ever. in the history of posts ;) - I'll just show you what I finished :D
Here are 8 of the items --- a tallish zipper pouch (back), earbud pouches
and a wallet
(middle), and 4 humbug/triangle bags
(front). I've linked the tutorials where I used them.
Here's a regular old scrappy pipper pouch (haha typo but I'm going to leave it because it made me laugh :D) ...
And here are 3 sets of bags from a design by Kristin Link of Sew Mama Sew. She offered up a lovely no-raw-edges front zip pouch tutorial several years ago, then gave us a great bonus of a tutorial do make the bag in more sizes! Both links are on my zipper tutorial page (here
This whole collection is going with me to aquafit tonight, where I'll deliver it to my Blue Hills connection - aka my friend, neighbour and sewy buddy, Miss Amanda :D
Fingers crossed that the post will go up without more black holes being created ...
