And I thought zippers were hard. HA. This side binding took all class.

Going into class today I was thinking I could finish this one up and start on the next.  NOPE.  It took all class to get the two side bindings!  
So many layers = bent needles!   YUCK.

You can see in this photo that I was introduced to the walking foot today.   Works great for multiple layers .
Wonder clips are fantastic!


Well that didnt work out well.   The Seam ripper is my friend.
Almost done!

Binding on!

Zippers are tough!

I mean tough!    3 hours to get 1 done and 1 ready to start.  I got home and thought I could finish and suddenly became best friends with my seam ripper.  I had to take the next zipper out TWICE!  I finally got it and turned the everything off so I could watch the Oscars!

Getting things lined up and ready to go.

Adding a top stitch was difficult but I did it!

Sewing project 2a

I spent two nights this week getting everything going for the project.  I finished cutting the second bag out.  It was much easier this time. Bonus was being at home in my own space with the music going.

Looking forward to class tomorrow.
My Craft room.  I am very grateful to have a space to work.  I moved all the scrapbooking gear to the side and cut out the second bag.  I really am feeling good about this project.

This is the only actual "pattern: in the project.  The rest is standard square or rectangle cuts .    I have a new appreciation for my Fiskars tools! 

The next day I got everything ironed and confirmed I had everything.  Then I cut out all the interfacing and ironed that to the required pieces.   Interfacing gives the fabric a bit of body and stiffness but not too much.
Here is bag 1 
Here is bag 2

This is the fabric with the interfacing added on.
