A post a day...
When I was a missionary for my church, my the president of my mission once said, "The road to Hell is paved with good intentions..." I had heard it before but when he said it, the words seemed to stick. You see, I intended to post a craft every day in March in honor of National Craft Month. So - I'm on my way to Hell I guess. But, I have crafted every day in March and that has to count for something.
I made these bags and I am so glad they are done and in the mail. Oh my!! What a project. The gal I made them for had specifics in mind but no pattern. So, with her instruction and measurements and my smarts (or something), the collaboration began.
Because of the busyness of the pattern on the lining fabric, it is hard to see what is going on in here, but let me try to explain. On the inside I created pleated pockets all of the way around the outside. There is a center divide. I don't know if I did it correctly, but it worked. Then I added patch pockets to the outside and a flap. Once they were all put together it didn't seem like a big deal, but it was hard to start. Both bags are practically identical. Needless to say, I am glad it is over. I cannot wait to see what she thinks of them. They are on their way to PA as we speak.
