I was a busy sewer today. Didn’t get everything done that I wanted, but I am happy. First I made a very simple scarf like this one. I used some homespun fabric that I bought last year. I love the colors–very autumn.
I also made a new bag for me (and a little something special for my sister). I love my new bag. The dimensions didn’t quite turn out how I had planned, but it works. The front side has a nice big pocket where my art journal will go, plus more little pockets inside. I even have a zipper pocket in there, my first ever. Sorry, the zipper photo didn’t turn out. I still have to add a closure button and the strap isn’t actually sewn on yet.
I’ll be leaving for my trip tomorrow around lunch time, so hopefully I’ll have everything ready. I have the hardest time packing. Not the clothes stuff, it’s the creative stuff that is hard for me. I always want to bring a lot more than I’ll ever need. Knowing me and my sister, we will be yacking echothers ears off- or eating the whole time (I’m sure she has some yummy food planned). Then there’s Ruby. I’ll be playing a lot with her too. It’s the plane and airport part that I want to be prepared for. Should I read, draw, listen to This American Life. I’ll have to narrow it down nicely, so I don’t have to carry too much.
