While browsing at the offerings from Indygo Junction the other day I came across this bag that looked almost woven:
I thought it would be a neat class for me to teach at the shop, something I haven't done in a while. The patterns arrived this week and yesterday I went to ponder the great question of what to make it with. In a rare moment of prescience I felt that I needed to make two, to learn the technique better and offer visual options to a wider range of sewists. I went for bright Kaffe Fasset for the summer and a green, beige and red conservative Civil War medley.
I worked on the first one this afternoon and learned so much as I went my head should explode anytime now. This is only the outside, as it is a lined bag and there is much to do with the lining and handles. So far though it's one of the most fun/addictive thing I have worked on in years, yes years. I will get better with time and make a all lot of those I know it.
Isn't the inside gorgeous!, I feel like petting it...
