I am so happy that I got my first Covid 19 vaccine this afternoon! It seems like I’ve been waiting forever.
Oh my god…. I really need a haircut! And what’s with all those glasses? Why would I go out in public looking like this?
I’m feeling a little achy and tired tonight so I didn’t do much sewing. But I did manage to finish the batik Frankenbag that I started last night.
I chose a green batik for the lining. This is actually one of the first batiks I ever purchased way back when I was just getting started in quilting.
Batik fabric is wider than other fabric, so the piece left over for the pocket was a little bigger. I used it all and added a center vertical seam in the pocket so that it has two sections. Each section is big enough that I can put my hand all the way in to grab something. Each side would easily hold my big iPhone.
I really like this alteration to the pocket. I also just love green batiks! So I was happy that I had a half yard of this one.
I still have to hand sew the tag on this bag. I was just too tired to do it tonight.
Another blog reader sent me photos today of a Frankenbag she made from my tutorial. Lydia Ross is giving her bag as a gift and she included photos that she printed onto fabric! What a great idea, and what a fun gift!
Adding pictures is such a great idea. And look at those adorable owls. Someone is going to be very lucky to get this as a gift.
I’m so impressed with what you all have made! And I really appreciate everyone who has shared their photos. It’s really fun to get to see them all.
As I was wrapping up our walk this evening I noticed my neighbor’s dogwood tree. The sun was going down and the low angle of the light lit this tree up in such an amazing way.
The dogwood trees are just starting to bloom. They are one of my favorite spring bloomers.
