Ignoring for a moment that I should be at 50 finished projects by the end of this month, I am still pretty excited about finishing the trick or treat bag. It still needs to be washed to remove the cat hair and chalk lines, and I had to come to terms with this
The other side turned out fine as well,
This is the first bag using a lighter poly/cotton broadcloth. It has more sheen to it and doesn't wrinkle, but the thinness and slight slipperiness made it a bit challenging to work with. I ended up using fusible fleece as a stabilizer, which seemed to solve the problem, and gives it a nice stiffness to the bag, so I'm very pleased. And it's FINISHED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yesterday I finished more gift bags,
I have the rest of the day to craft, but haven't yet decided what to do with myself. Start a new sewing project? The beaded scarf? One of the ornament kits? One good thing about having a monstrous stash--the possibilities are ENDLESS!
