Happy Tuesday! How did you enjoy your extra day of the year? I was grateful for it, as I was able to complete my Rockstar Bag in February! I didn’t have time to take good pictures, so I’ll save them for a Finished Friday post. In the meantime, here’s a sneak peek…
Yesterday I received the handles I ordered from China for my February bag of the month, The Window Shopper Tote. I took a picture to show the difference in the handles. You can see that the ones with the screws are going to fit snugly together, whereas the lighter weight ones don’t really align well. I can even feel a difference, as the one with the tabs are much lighter than the others. I am very glad I decided to wait on this order to install the handles. The new ones are slightly smaller, but the stitching outline I sewed onto the bag will still work. Whew!
One super fun thing this week was that I finally received my Tula Pink hardware that I pre-ordered from Pink Door Fabrics way back when these debuted at Fall Market. It was love at first sight! I decided to take a picture of them all together with my treasured squirrel print that I asked Tula Pink to sign when she was at Quiltique in Las Vegas in 2015. It’s all so pretty together!
This week I need to install the handles on The Window Shopper tote and take pictures of both that bag and the Rockstar bag for future Finished Friday posts. Also, I will be reviewing a class for Sew Sweetness’ Craftsy Review Month. Every day during this month she will be hosting a post that either she, or another person/blogger, has written reviewing various Craftsy classes. You can see the schedule of reviews as well as links to the reviews HERE. My review of Mix and Match Clutch Bag Techniques by Janelle McKay of Emmaline Bags will be posted on March 23rd. I have been anxiously waiting for March to get here, and other commitments to end, so that I could start this class. I am excited that I will have time to begin the class this week!
