I'm Just Sticking with Academics for Now
Nice little bag, right? First of all the fabric frays like crazy, so in my zeal to finish this Sunday evening I was snipping at the loose threads and cut into the fabric. Okay, I can live with that - I didn't like the fabric and I didn't like the way I put in the button loop. I should have folded it the opposite way. I wouldn't give it to anyone, but I would use it to store a project. Then I looked inside.
Yes, that would be a lovely 8"x10" zippered pocket sewn upside down. With that, I got my clothes ready for the week, packed up the laptop and other necessities and went to bed. I'm back in class for two weeks. Despite having three pairs of pants cut and ready to go, I'm laying of sewing until I'm not so rushed.
The merino is in the mulch pile, thanks to all the good advice. I always think I can save something, but it's very liberating to just close the book. So, Cassie, is the bag a good lesson, too? I seem to be in the education mode.
