(Ok, here is my attempt to take some pix outside, as it was expressed at PR weekend that I need to get my pix out of the bathroom....here you go!)
So I made the 7 hour zipper pouch for myself, only this time in the "small" size. It took ~3.5 hours. I think I can get it down to 3.
There is nothing in the bag...so it's a little saggy.
This is the laminated version of the subway fabric from the City Quilter. Maria and I each bought some on our big shopping day.
This is how I used to go to the city (via train, exiting at 34th St Penn Station):
And this is how I go to the city now (via bus, exiting at Port Authority bus terminal):
I used the same dimensions as the last zipper tags, but minus a half inch length-wise.
Yes, it had just rained (and was drizzling a little while taking these pix). But the fabric is laminated, woot! I lined it in green denim from deep stash, same as Maria's.
The zipper is from SIL Thread, purchased on the same trip with Maria. I think this zipper was under $2. What a deal compared to Joann's.
I like having Manhattan centered on the "front" of the bag....but I somehow put the zipper pull to the right instead of the left. I never realized that zipper pouches always have the zipper pull on the left. So I guess the back of the bag is now the front.
It is a really cute little bag. I plan on making the larger version again soon, also out of the laminated fabric, and then comparing in one photo.
Oh, and I made a skirt with a piece of my Kaimuku fabric today. Here is a sneak peek from an outtake photo!
Here are your Princeton Farmers Market flowers for the week. The ones from last week were Nigella--there are a few of them left...
