and still not sure I like it!
I've lost count of the number of times I've re-arranged these....
and still I can't say I'm really happy with the result. It's strange because I really love the fabrics.... Pure by Sweetwater.... so I don't understand why I'm finding it so difficult to arrange them. I've changed them again since I took this photo.
I thought they'd be perfect for this....
it's the Madeline bag pattern I bought from Clover & Violet..... but now I'm having doubts. I felt so smug about using this charm pack too..... it came from stash. I get points for that... right!
I've already placed an order with The Fat Quarters for some of the dark brown wording for the sides and base and a blue with brown spot for the handles and ties. I'm committed..... or maybe I should be. But I can't shake the feeling that I'm making a pigs breakfast out of a great bag.
I'd better sleep on it....... again!
On a brighter note Mac made me this today.....
my very own revolving cutting table.
I know you can buy them but they'd certainly cost a lot more than this one. He used a revolving turntable bought from a Pound store.... the kind for putting portable TVs on.... then cut and glued a circle from a small cutting mat onto the top.
It's so dinky... and it works perfectly for cutting hexies with a rotary cutter. I've plans to try more paper piecing too so it's going to be really useful long term.
Cut these in no time this afternoon.....
I plan to sew these tomorrow. I'm stewarding at a craft exhibition the whole day. There's an awful lot of sitting involved so I'm hoping stitching these will help pass the time. Mac has sticks in the exhibition so I'm keeping my fingers crossed he gets some sales.
Better get myself up to bed and hope I dream up a solution to my bag problem.
Till next time
