Is it hot enough for you? Honestly, if one more person asks me that, I might scream! Yes, as a matter of fact, it is hot enough for me! It is day 3 or 4 (I've lost track) of being under an "excessive heat warning." While earlier this summer I proved my theory that tan fat is definitely more attractive than ultra white fat, excessive sweating is not attractive in either hue! Enough whining. I am thankful it is summer and not winter!
Since my last post, I've made a zippy bag using the Owl and Pussycat embroidery I completed. I used an owl fabric for the back of the bag and a multicolored polka dot fabric for the lining. I attached a super cute owl charm to use as a zipper pull. I think the bag turned out pretty cute!
Amid the cool conditioned air inside my studio, I also made up a quick bag using the fabrics I bought on vacation a few weeks ago. I really like how the fabrics go together. Overall I like the pattern, too. However, I think I made the strap too long. I do like to carry my purse across my body, like a messenger bag, but I don't think that a longer strap is suited for this particular style of bag. So, I am going to shorten the strap and carry it just on my shoulder. That's what so great about sewing your own bags, clothes, etc. If you don't like it, you can alter it any which way you want!
I'm still working on my embroidery skills. I really enjoy that actual sewing part of the projects, but I am NOT a fan of separating floss! I guess that's part of the process!
