The Owl Bag
The Owl Bag is done! I'm a sewing fool! It's a little smaller than my usual purse, but big enough for my water bottle, date book, and other essentials, with a few small pockets and sleeve for the water bottle to be held in.
It was Joanie's idea to have the brown duck fabric along the bottom and I love how it looks, and the durability it will add. I didn't have enough fabric to make a long shoulder strap, so I pieced two strips together, cleverly hidden under the matching duck fabric shoulder thingy (a better word?).
Note the double stitching, above, one of the extra special stitches on my machine!
The lady likes her Owl Bag!
And presenting my new and improved Crafting Storage Area:
A pine armoir, generously given to us by some friends at the school. It now holds my art supplies, my fabrics and notions, and all of my saved-for-cutting up magazines...in one location, where I can see everything and know what I have. I am day-dreaming some nifty totes or baskets for sub-organizing, but for now, this is a big improvement over the pile in the corner of my living room and crowded all over my work table! Now, if the organization fairy only visited my yarn stash...
