Thank you for all your comments about the bag! I decided to leave it as you last saw it and I sewed up the lining. Then I read how the plastic canvas will break eventually. I'll cross that bridge when I get there. For now I am loving using my bag! It is the perfect size for work and it makes me smile (especially the lining!)
There were two main modifications I wanted to make to my Sewaholic Thurlows: slenderize the thighs as per Angela Wolf's instructions, plus remove the belt loop I attached to the CB seam, move it over and add another belt loop.
I slenderized while watching the Queer Eye reunion last night. As per their theme song, all things just keep getting better, but somehow I cut off my face while taking most of these pix (I use a camera with a 10 second timer)....
What do you think? Better?
Two belt loops at the CB really helps keep the belt in place better. (The pattern called for two of them at CB but for whatever reason, I just put one. It needed two for sure).
I was worried that slenderizing them would make them too tight for sitting, but I wore them all day and they were comfy.
Here's what they looked like after a day of wearing:
I will make these again, specifically in a brown corduroy I picked up at Haberman's. There are quite a few things I want to make soon....which item will rise to the top of the queue??
Did I look cold in these pix? It was a little chilly this morning for the photo shoot. and it's why my face is cut off in several. No time for taking 50 pix to get the 3 good ones, amiright???
On the way to work this morning I saw a gorgeous sunrise over Lake Carnegie. I'm really glad I stopped to snap some pix and take in the moment.
I also took a pic of my sandals by the lake. I was wearing the brown corduroy jacket I made with my corduroy pants. Can you tell I love corduroy?
In other news, harvested 3 of my 4 jack-be-little pumpkins this weekend. They are size: adorable. :)
And here are some Princeton Farmers Market flowers. I hope the market lasts for another week!
