We’ve been having some really rainy weather. It literally rained all day today. My poor dogs were not happy that we didn’t get a mid day walk. I wasn’t very happy about it either. The work days when I’m not able to get out mid day are difficult work days.
We did get a little break in the weather at 5:00 or so and I geared up and we headed out. We walked three miles, which takes us a little less than an hour. Most of the walk was in rain… soaking rain… mist… light rain… drizzle. We were wet by the time we got home, but we were much happier than when we were dry.
Since I didn’t get my walk mid day, I used part of my lunch break and made the zipper placket for my yellow Frankenbag.
After our wet walk this evening, I got it all applied to the bag that I finished last night. It works fine to do it after the bag is done. But it’s a little easier to line it all up if it’s sewn to the lining when the two lining pieces are flat.
I think the onion rings fabric was the right choice. It even looks like I was very careful in lining up the pattern on the fabric. I’ll let you believe that’s the case… and that it’s not just a happy accident!
I also took a few minutes to sew on my label. I just love these labels! They are the perfect finishing touch.
Here’s a few more photos of the finished bag.
While I had my needle and thread out, I decided to sew the tag on the Aboriginal fabrics bag I finished last week.
That’s two late holiday gifts done. Two more to go!
A friend of mine named Mary Basu painted this picture of Bender. She really captured him! I’ve added the original photo too. Check her out on Instagram and see some of her creativity at work.
We have a couple more days of rain coming up and then we’ll get a patch of some really lovely weather! I could really use a break from the rain and I’m hoping I’ll actually get to see the sun!
This forecast is even better because I have sheep herding lessons on Saturday and Sunday!
