(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...
So cute (again). Think I may have to pick up that pattern!ReplyDelete
Yay, for making that bag again so soon. It is a "must have" for sure! Looking forward to seeing the whole skirt! It's the aqua fabric...great summer color!ReplyDelete
Now I know what stations I need to feature on my laminated version :)ReplyDelete
I didn't realise about the zipper direction either.
That green lining is still my fav.
I like how your skirt is turning out too. It's a great summer look.
PS it's freezing in Sydney and raining.
Your planning skills for fabric shopping are impeccable.
Another great zippered pouch. Nice! Thanks for always sharing photos of your flowers, too.ReplyDelete
That is such a great little clutch. umm, was it me who made the bathroom comment? :-) mouth<---footReplyDelete
You customized and fussy cut the zipper stops! Wow, no detail escapes you. Awesome. :)ReplyDelete
