I've had 1 yard of this very cheerful Ikea print for a while and I thought it'll be perfect for this shoulder bag.
This time is Little Red's turn to pose with the bag.
Can you tell I'm struggling with the setting on my new camera? The late afternoon lighting is too low. I try many settings just to see what works. Luckily my model is a stuffed doll.
Usually when I sew zippers, I baste using large stitches to hold them down. I don't use glue. But this year I want to try other different ways of doing stuff and I used Steam-A-Seam. It's like a double-sided tape except you need to use a hot iron to apply over it to make it stick to your fabric/zipper. It does make it easier to align your zipper.
This is the first of ten bags I'm making this month. 1 down, 9 more to go!
