So this morning, we got up around 5, and got out the door by 5:40. It was supposed to be earlier and indeed I was waiting at the door when my husband decided he needed to get a towel (our bags were supposed to be readied the night before), and then when he had gone upstairs and back he decided he needed to fill his water bottle. I was trying not to tap my toe. In our house, it is not the lady who is "high-maintenance." I went to water aerobics and he went to a workout class. It felt great to be in the pool working out and not sweating! The Y not only has water aerobics, but they have 5 or 6 different kinds of water aerobic classes. Cool!
Needless to say, it is nearly 10 AM here now and I'm... tired. Ha ha.
But, back to quilting...
This is the project I'm making with the petals from my last post.
This is the back of the bag. This is a "prototype" and after making it, I'm tweaking it a bit. I'm actually using this pattern from the Moda Bakeshop
Here is the front, with the flower in place.
Here is a closeup. Can you see that bit of green felt showing behind it? There is a reason for it. I'm in an organization here and this is our logo:
So I was trying to replicate the look for the bag.
The problem with this prototype is that you are supposed to pinch the corners and stitch across them to give the bag a flat bottom, but I sewed the felt square too close to the edges, so that didn't work. I'm also going to use more than just pink fabrics. Hopefully I will have one of those to show tomorrow? At least this week sometime.
PS. I HAVE to mention the ric rac. I LOVE ric rac!
Have a great day!
