And now I am brave enough to try again and get the larger size little bag right!
This was earlier in the day: My goal today for being creative every day challenge was to make a little bag from a magazine I have called: sews stylish gifts to make . The pattern I selected is on page 33 and is called elegant evening bags. (Or make-up/cosmetic bags...or depending on fabric used just fun little carry things in bags). I chose some brightly floral cotton fabric from my stash...a stripy fat quarter for the ruffled top and solid pink that blended with the top for the lining. It looked easy to do. And I did fairly well slowly, painstakingly following the directions with it's 1/8" seam here and 3/8th" seam there...right sides together, turn right side out...then came...
add the zipper. I gathered the ruffled top fairly well...good enough anyway...and got the zipper in place, but along the way something happened to the zippers teeth and much too much time was spent trying to get the head back on the zipper's two lines of teeth! Could NOT get them to match up. So I am this far along, and went out to buy new zippers. I will spend this evening tearing out the zipper and ruffle and top and lining ends sewn together. I hope I can do this without ruining it all.
Perhaps I should just start over. I have plenty of fabric...could do...we'll see...it said it was EASY.
Well, it's a learning curve for me. On ward.
