I am still not feeling great, but I did manage to make a few things yesterday. I thought I would try a little more embroidery work, so I made a couple of small zip bags. I haven't done a lot of hand embroidery in the past, but I am enjoying it. I think they are cute! J I also made this DVD tin photo album, A LOT of fun…I will definitely be making more of these!!!
AND then there is this little black and white tote. Normally, I would sew my tote first, and then box the sides. I had the bright idea of cutting the squares out of each corner first, to make it easier to line up my seams, but I neglected to measure properly and ended up with a perfectly square bottom bag. Ugh! So, I took it apart and cut down the sides and the bottom, resulting in a MUCH smaller tote. There are four pockets on the outside of the tote, one in the front and back and one on each side. The side pockets were perfect for cell phone, iPod, etc., but because I had to cut the tote down, they are now pencil holders. Ha! Ha! Oh well, live and learn… It is perfect for carrying a couple of books. I can use it to carry my bible to church and bible study!
