I woke up on Saturday morning feeling like it was time for a new Spring bag. I haven't made a purse or bag in AGES and I had the itch.
I am so out of practice when it comes to making bags and I know that so I just made a simple bag. I interfaced the outer fabric with fusible fleece and the lining with a heavy interfacing. It also has a magnetic snap closure.
I love it, but it's an odd shape. It's way too tall. (What WAS I thinking?)
It might not be so bad once I cram all my junk into it.
And then I had to finish hemming ANOTHER Simplicity 3835 blouse.
Which of course HAD to have a matching pendant.
And then, this morning, sticking with the "use what I have" theme I decided to make a pair of lounge pants for the summer (if it ever gets here) out of a thrifted sheet. I don't have a large collection of thrifted sheets, but I've decided it's time to use them. Now, I didn't realize until AFTER I cut out the pants and started sewing them together that the sheet was partially faded!!! Consider yourself warned! I carried on because these pants are just for bumming around the house in.
They are slightly cropped and I used bias tape around the hem just for something different. I think I'm going to have to make more of these to replace all my flannel jammie bottoms for when the warmer weather arrives.
Now I'm off to Value Village to look at the sheets. I'm allowed. I really don't have any others to make pants out of! And then I might meet up with Joe and the dogs who are already out geocaching.
I hope you all had a great weekend!
