And again...

The nice thing about corduroy is that it's cotton, so you can interface it and make it into a bag.

The nice thing about this particular corduroy is that it's really, really pretty.

Problem is, I'm struggling to find a fabric for a lining or a nice ribbon for some straps, but when I do it will be my new pretty bag.

This is some kind of furnishing fabric that is also 100% cotton, but it has the unusual distinction of looking completely, completely different in photos. None of the colours look like that. It's actually quite nice, as a potential bag, though I imagine if you used it for curtains or to cover a couch or something it would look horrible. And in real life too, not just in photos. It's a bit, um, gaudy. Still, cute summer bag, for the beach.

I'm so ready for Summer. These sorta-nice spring days we've been having have been like a nasty, nasty tease before we get into the good stuff. I know people hate it, but I am so ready for 35 degree days, going down the river, doing stuff all and not feeling a need to justify it cause, hey, it's the middle of summer and laying down under the trampoline for 6 hours is kinda the done thing.

I guess what I'm dancing around saying is that today I didn't really get anything* done and I feel bad about it.

*I got my harddrives sorted though, and that took about 5 hours. Most of the rest was sitting on the couch eating fairy floss.

  1. When does summer begin? does it coincide with our winter beginning? How many bags have you made of late? are you making them for market? I haven't been sewing at all so I have to sew vicariously through others .. man have I been lazy.
