But! I will try not to get sucked into the vortex of sadness however easy that might be. Scott would not have wanted that. Instead I went to church this morning and then came home and started sewing.
So, the last zippered pouch I made was just by me trying to figure it out. It is lined but the seams show and I just hate that. I've been sewing so long that I can figure most things out, but some things just don't make sense to my brain right now. I did a little google search and came across a few tutorials for lined zipper pouches and found one that was written well and thought "ha!" I had taken my other one into work and Charese saw it and wanted me to make her one. But there was no way I would be giving her one with exposed seams. I like the way these turned out. I went with a medium weight interfacing, last time I think it was light weight. Next time I think I'll get shorter zippers, but I just used what I had.
I LOVE that llama fabric. Let's discuss. Here's what happens to me. I read blogs. I like what goes on on other people's blogs. I see fabric that screams "buy me!" and click whatever link there is and buy. What happened in this situation is that I did not pay attention to what I was buying. More specifically the quantity of what I was buying. Ummm, I thought I was getting 1 yard of fabric for $8.50 plus S&H. Imagine my surprise when I opened the envelope and had really bought just a fat quarter. huh. A tiny fraction of what I thought I was getting and all the plans I had for this fabric went out the window! It has lurked in my stash since March 2012......waiting for the perfect project. I am so, so, SO happy I could finally use this bit of fabric :) It's going to be perfect to put some knitting in.
