This is the little waiting area at Etsy Labs. Normally, Gertie (Cal's cute little dog) would be napping here but she had to stay home.
At out work areas.
My bag on its way to being stitched together. In hindsight, picking a striped fabric probably wasn't the best idea for my first project.
Double vision + stripes = ALOT of stripes!
I've learned that even with good lighting, my glasses are a very very good thing. I was attaching the handles here and attached them too close the edge at first. When I picked the bag up, the handle fell right off. Oops!
Cal snapped a pic while I was showing her that the handles were really attached this time.
Tada! You might notice that after I squared off the bottom of the purse, the pocket turned out wider than the actual purse iteself. Second oops! I intended to use that pocket for patterns, so as long as its a soft magazine or paper pattern, it shouldn't be a problem.
