Well, I tied that knot a little over 3 years ago, but that's not what I'm talking about. A bag from the S.E.W Sew Everything Workshop is what I'm referring to.
It was labeled as very easy and very easy is something I can stand behind, hee hee. Cutting out the pieces was easy and I didn't have any trouble getting the bag sewn together.
This fabric is a scrap a friend sent me to practice on and I love it. Its funky enough to be different but not weird. This is how the bag is meant to be worn, with a knot.
I felt like the bag was too short on me with the knot, so I figured I would learn how to use the automatic button-hole maker on the sewing machine. It took a few tries and my nose in the manual for awhile, but it worked like a charm.
Viola, longer handles!
It was a lot easier than I expected it to be. Now I keep looking at things to make button-holes on. :)
That's all the crafting that happened this week. My job is changing location next month, from Wall Street to the Village, and we've been nutty busy trying to clean up. The firm is hoping to become as "paperless" as possible. I've spent a good chunk of OT on scanning my files and cleaning my desk out of nearly 6 years worth of notes, memos, and files. I'm hoping to get it all done by the second week of April because I'd like to take my vacation during Easter week. Cross your fingers for me, as I'm not even halfway there yet.
We're also going to the circus tomorrow with Girl Scouts. Its a 45 minute subway ride, so maybe I'll bring a crochet hook with me to scratch some of the fiber itch I'm having. I need to crochet something...anything! Maybe a simple granny square for charity or a hat. Oooh yeah, a hat!
