Have you ever had an idea and started a project only to have to walk away from it to make dinner or get to a Girl Scout meeting on time? With knitting, or crochet, it's fairly easy to set a project aside and come back to it whenever you want to. When I'm sewing, on the other hand, I would much rather finish the item in one sitting, or at least on consecutive days, if possible. I started a tote bag design on Friday and had to put it away for the long weekend. Now I'm wishing I had taken notes on what exactly I was planning. I have some measurements jotted down, but I'm still not exactly sure what I had in mind for it. Most of my designs end up being one-of-a-kind....because I don't write things down! I do, however, take better notes when designing with fiber.
I managed to finish the tote ...only to find a slightly crooked handle and a stain on the lining material. I'm not very happy with the way the fabric wrinkled to the fusible interfacing. So, maybe I have a new tote? Ah well - I like the colors.
I'm posting my first poll! Please take a moment to vote.
