On the back of each block we had to add a bit of information so each participant would know where the blocks are coming from. I just attached one of my little cards with all of that.
My next project finished up was the mystery bag that Gracie Lou's sponsored. This was a really fun sew along that lasted a week. Both me and Kira did this together. It was fun talking to her over the phone on each of the sewing days to compare what we thought was going to be the next step. In the end the bag is darling and sooooooooooo big. I gave mine to Kaitlyn to use as a diaper bag or travel bag for her trip to Nauvoo. Thanks to Jana from Gracie Lou's for making this fun for everyone. If she doesn't mind, I think I want to incorporate something like this into my Simply Sewing class. We are going to have a Simply Sewing 101 Saturday Retreat, I think this would be something we could do during the day. What do you think?
This is the inside of the bag. I added two more pockets inside from left over fabric, and I bound the pocket edges with bias tape.
Isn't she cute! I like the way she had us do the straps with the D-rings. A very cute accent. And the pocket on the front is a kangaroo pocket. It kind of reminds me of some aprons I've made in the past! What a fun bag. It's time to make another one I do believe, although I would change a few things on it to fit my needs. Happy Sewing, Shannon
