It started out well...
I was up early and got Dave packed off to work, so I decided it was time to finally start production on some Kitten Kaboodles.
Dave's grandma's table makes the perfect cutting center
It seems I had the fabric folded the wrong way when I cut it out, so one side had upside down moose. Sadly, I don't have enough of it left to cut another one. I moved onto the green tapestry bag to the right instead.
First, I realized the pockets were cut a little too small. Not a huge deal, but it meant a little extra securing. Then I accidentally sewed the strap into the side seam (it must have gotten tucked in when I wasn't looking.) A few minutes of seam-ripping then I was back on track.
Then I did the seam allowances on the outside of the bag a little bigger than the lining... it didn't seem like a big deal until I had to sew the lining to the outer shell... can you say puckering?
In the end, the bag got done - but this one won't be destined for the shop
