I took Rico for his weekly sheep herding lesson today and he was, as usual, a-mazing! Then I met a friend and her dogs to let the dogs have a nice run in a big field together. They had a blast!
The friend I met is the one I made the octopus bag for. I gave it to her today and she loved it! That’s always a nice bonus.
Once I got home I dug in and finished the Laurel Burch/Brandon Mably bag. All I had to do was add the zipper placket, sew the lining together and sew it to the bag body, then finish the top of the bag and the placket.
Here’s the front of the finished bag.
And the back…
And my favorite little tag…
And some photos of the placket and pockets.
I have to say… I am a complete convert to this method of doing the zipper pocket. It’s so easy and it looks really high end. And I like that lining too. I’m glad I remembered I had it in my stash.
And now it’s only 7:30 pm. What am I going to do the rest of the night? Thinking of starting on another set of panels for a new Frankenbag. Might just dig into my scraps and see what appeals to me.
After a nice field run and another three-mile walk before dinner, Bender is not convinced that it’s time to wind down on his Saturday,
Ok… going scrap diving!
