Wow! The Yard Sale link up was fun!! And successful! Thank you to all who purchased my items. I hope they will be happy in their new homes. Everything is packaged up and ready for the post office tomorrow. I'm already looking forward to next month's sale. :)
In between checking Yard Sale emails, I made a little bag for a blogging friend that gifted me with some goodies, so I am going to return the favor. I bought this zipper bag pattern a few months ago, but this was my first time trying it out. We've all made zipper bags in one form or another...but there is always another fun pattern out there to try, isn't there? :) I love Terry Atkinson's patterns and this is no exception. The instructions are super clear and the "tips" are great.
|Here the bag is partially assembled...I loved those little quilted panels just like this! It's a "quilt as you go" type of pattern, and I used fusible fleece.|
|I wish I had some big ric-rac to use...maybe next time!|
|Isn't it just so cute? This is the "medium" size bag from the pattern and measures about 10" wide at the widest point and about 6" tall.|
|Look at all that nice space...perfect for a sewing kit, make up bag...who knows??|
|Smokey spent the afternoon inspecting the rest of the orange fabric. :P|
A little note about how one little comment from another can make a difference...I listed this Quilter's Calculator for sale yesterday in the yard sale. I had noted that I was looking for the instructions and hoped I would find them before sending it off to the buyer. Shirley took the time to leave a comment and let me know that there was a secret little compartment in the calculator and the book should be located there.
|Well, what do you know? There is even a little diagram....|
|Pop open the little door...what's this?? It's upside down, but hey....|
Hope you all had a good weekend. I'm hoping for sunshine this week...but I haven't even looked at the forecast yet. I'm afraid to. LOL
