Looking Forward To...

... making this cool bag from 'Dog Under My Desk'!
Yesterday I paid for the pattern online and then immediately received the PDF-pattern in my inbox. Quite a bit of printing out is involved and then some fun cutting and pasting of the pattern pieces. I actually like that pre-sewing stage. This way you get to know your pattern more 'intimately so to speak...  <wink>' 

I also ordered some fabric. Not the regular cotton but actual laminated cotton. They've added some kind of vinyl layer to one side so that it protects from the weather, but it is not as heavy as oilcloth. At least, that is my understanding. 

All from Michael Miller
I was quite enamored with the scrapbook looking fabric (French Journal Belle Rose Pink) so that will be my main fabric and then I might use some of the other two fabric as accent pieces. I will decide when I finally have them in my hands (at least a week from now since those shipping orders always take a while, especially this time of year)  Or maybe I will use the other two for that other bag that is in the top photo, the more rectangular one, who knows...

Anyway, I've got something to look forward to. I'm still busy sewing another dress at the moment which I would like to wear for X-Mas, so I'd better hurry up. <wink>


  1. Love your pictures of Cow Road, that is so great.

  2. Oh, wat vreselijk leuk zeg! Wist niet eens, dat dit bestond, dank voor de link! Ik wil al jaren leren om fatsoenlijke tasjes te maken, meestal begin ik enthousiast en word niks.. omdat de juiste volgorde en techniek ontbreekt! Ik ben heel benieuwd naar jouw resultaat!

  3. Pattern looks great and I prefer your fabric, you have inspired me to sew today!
    Bestest to you and yours

At the Lake...

To celebrate our last days together, Miss M. and I decided to go on a walk to Rattlesnake Lake, just past North Bend, WA. It was ...
