Usually I do my video blog on Mondays, but I don't see that happening today with three kiddles running around etc. etc. Today I am going to share with you my one yard blunder.
A while ago, my aunt asked me to make her a little bag for the gym to house her ipod, phone, id, etc. etc. Have you heard of the book "One Yard Wonders"? I bought it a year ago and have made a couple of things out of it with no problem. I found this little bag (Hands Free Belt Bag) in there and thought it would be perfect for my aunts needs minus the belt holder. This weekend, I gave it a go. I have enough fabric to drape the windows of Westminster Abbey, but I still couldn't resist the fabric I found for this from Hobby Lobby :)
I'm not going to mince words. This bag was the most FRUSTRATING thing I've made in recent memory. The directions were HORRIBLE. Let me just say, it's the first tutorial where I've seen the word "gusset" and if I see that word again, I'm going to run and hide. I learn best visually and there were no pictures to guide along.
|My attempt at fixing the mistake.|
|Here's what I said when I saw that I did this: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!|
|Look at her. Laughing at me. Mocking me. I'm no Tina Bradley. That's for sure.|
On a lighter note, I'm doing an etsy freebie this summer. Now through August, all purchases made through my etsy site will come with one of these cute paper clippy book marks. I saw the paper clips with flags on another site (don't remember which one) and I decided to make my own version.
Now I'm going to get back to seam ripping and then hopefully put this one yard blunder to bed.
