Quite a bit of sewing yesterday and today and quite a bit of "unsewing" because I had problems with my metallic thread and didn't realize it until I had to stop and clean out my bobbin case. Interestingly enough, I didn't really get upset, I was having a good time just doodling. It is going to take some time to fill in the applique pieces, and hopefully it will be worth the effort. If nothing else I figure I am practicing my free motion skills.
Today I worked on and completed my version of a Retro Bag pattern. http://www.etsy.com/listing/58676102/retro-fun-bag-patterns?ref=em, I purchased from Greta's Blog. I added 3 inches to the width of the bag and made the handles longer because I want to use it for a tote for work and also this was my practice run. I am happy with the outcome and can't wait to make a few more in different sizes and true to the pattern (which is much sleaker). She has a picture of a small version, which I think would be a really cute accessory to match the bag. Front and back
