Friday Night Sew In- Plus CGQC finish


We all had fun here at DQ at the Friday Night Sew In.
As you can see, even Buddy came into the sewing room to hang out. He had his new Nintendo DS that Santa bought him. He has been enjoying playing his new games. I thought it was nice he came in to hang out with mom instead of dad!
Honestly, I can admit that if it wasn't for the sew-in, this purse would still not be done. Thanks to Heidi for organizing the fun. I am glad to be done with this purse. I had problems every step of the way on it, mostly due to my own silly mistakes. I think I would make it with sturdy interfacing though instead of batting, it was very difficult to sew straight (which I did not) at the end due to the thickness, even with my walking foot.
I am so relieved to be done though. It is a nice design. I should have opened it up for you to see how the top split open for a large (20 inch) zipper opening. It has great pockets on the inside, too. It just isn't my best sewing. It is funny how you get to the point, you stop thinking yourself a beginner and then along comes a project, that totally proves to you how much of a novice you still are.

What are you gals up to this Saturday morning???
Here is a picture of Buddy enjoying the snow earlier in the week.

What a cute bag -- sorry to hear it was such a pain! Love that your little one joined you for the sew-in--and had such fun in the snow!

The bag looks great! I had been thinking about making a bag a while ago but then Vera Bradley had a great sale and I decided to go that route. I probably spent less on the bag from Vera than if I chose to make one myself. LOL! I still love looking at the ones everyone else makes!
