There is nothing like a deadline to give you a good kick in the pants. After last week’s WIP post I realized that I needed to get going on my projects (for the mere selfish fact that there are more projects I want to do). I therefore set to work on my boho bag (pattern from here). The fringe was easy, but still, I dragged my feet to add a liner. This purse can be made without one, but I felt it would be more secure (and I’d be more prone to use it) if I added one. Only problem was, I’m a little scared of my sewing machine. Hand sewing was an option, but it would take a lot more time. So, at about 6:30 last night, with nothing else to write about, I bit the bullet and got on my machine.
Making the liner took hardly any time at all. Plus, I had Little C next to me the whole time cheering me on, “Good job, Mom. You’re a really good sewer. Can I try next?” I hand sewed it into the bag, which admittedly looks a little sloppy, but it is secure and now I don’t have to worry about lipgloss and keys falling out.
I used a faux leather strap from an old purse, It worked out perfectly. And the button was from my collection. What do you think?
Hope everyone’s projects are getting completed! Happy Crocheting!
