In the bag
I added a pocket on the inside of Ai's new bag -- just the right size to keep her cell phone handy. She cut out the pieces and I did all the sewing. I don't know why I always end up doing all the sewing for her! Next time, she's doin' it! She chose two florals from the selection of coordinating fabrics and they made an awfully cute bag. I don't know if I've ever sewn a bag before, certainly never a lined one with a gusset and separate strap and using buckram.
Looks like I'll be heading up north to Dad's with the grrs this weekend -- either Friday night or Saturday morning. This is the first opportunity all summer and, while we usually like more than a weekend (because it's such a long drive), we'll grab the chance! At least one of my sisters and my brother will be there for a part of the weekend, too. There are fiber opportunities along the way, so I'll be plotting my course for the rest of the week! I'll also be heading up north again next week (in a more westerly direction), to another sister's and there are even more opportunities! I was just working on my Wisconsin Resources list) in the sidebar late last week... what's on the way?
