But as you can see, now I finally did. Isn't the pocket swell? Elizabeth shared some feedsacks with me, and this one went perfectly with my fruity Moda. I had everything on hand except the elastic.
Its from a Need'l Love book, French Market Threads. I'm so thrilled to discover their website. American Patchwork and Quilting magazine did a story on Renee in the current issue. I love her stuff.
With my newly aquired photo shop skills, and believe me, it's a big stretch to call them skills, I managed to come up with a PKMish label that I like. And it goes with the bag.
Because I'm not satisfied with just the Pamkittymorning labels that I ordered! Everyone must know, its a PAMKITTYMORNING bag. SEE IT! KNOW IT! Behold it in its completed glory! Nah, I never say stuff like that. I say things like "Geez Pam, get enough labels on that bag yet?"
I know, I'm ridiculous. I'm not afraid to admit it either. I also had to show off some of my darling little ribbon from Daiso. Seriously I could weep with the cuteness of it.
Loved the pattern for the bag. I did change some stuff, like I only have the tie on one side. The pattern calls for ties front and back. I added a bit of elastic to the tie, so it would have some give when I wanted to jam stuff into it and I wouldn't have to untie it. I just cut it in half and sewed the two ends to a piece of elastic. I lined the bag with prewashed canvas to give it body. I also added an inside pocket. I wanted to use this zipper tutorial, but until just this second I forgot that I bought a zipper for it. Oh well, next time.
So there you have it. Nothing that can't be accomplished with a couple of taped episodes of Crossing Jordan and a bonus Perry Mason!
