Today I decided to try a different approach to getting myself to make bags. I decided to treat myself like a child. So the new approach is this: I treat making bags as homework and I don't get to play until I have finished my homework. And you know what? It worked. Maybe it worked for today and for all I know, I'll have to go back to using my finger gun but the important thing is I made a bag.
So I looked around the mess next to my sewing table and saw this scooter fabric. I love the scooters print but everything hinged on finding a suitable lining. I'm so glad I had just the one right lining visible in the pile.
Nowadays I try not to make the same design over and over again. Because I get so bored and when I get bored I stop sewing. Today while looking at the scooter fabric, I thought it would look good as a little shoulder bag. And because finding the right colour zipper would involve more searching, I decided I would not do zipper. Why am I so lazy?
What do you think? Am I right about the scooter fabric? Perfect for a little shoulder bag.
You probably can't tell the size of the shoulder bag so I took this pic with my girl's water bottle. Now you can see it's not such a big bag.
It fits Melly but not Bear. Just look at him. Having a Big Sulk. But he does have a huge butt.
I am thinking this scooter shoulder bag would look really good with a long strap and slightly larger. I'm excited. Maybe I'll do that tomorrow. Meanwhile I am done with my homework and I'm going to go play.
