I am in full geek out mode lately, it seems. And now I have about two yards of extra Spider Man fabric.
At first, I danced with the idea of making a skirt because, well, they are easy, and I’ve done it before. What kind of blogger would I be if I only did stuff I felt comfortable with, though? I like to think that half of the fun is getting see the pictures of 135 inches of fabric splayed out on my floor because I asked for 4 yards instead of 4 feet.
So instead, I’m going the bag route.
I don’t do purses in general. I have used a grand total of 6 purses in my life time, and 6 of them were used before I really had anything worth carrying in a purse.
However, my thinking is this: I work in a craft store that required bag checks every day as we leave. Currently, I have a bag with umpteen thousand pockets, and it is kind of a pain to go through when I’m just trying to get home to craft. I need a simpler bag to bring to work that can hold my wallet, lunch, and phone with no problems. I am told these are generally called “tote bags”, so that is what I’m going for.
Most of them are made with canvas. I could go buy canvas. But I have a boatload of fabric upstairs and sitting on the dining room table, so that just seems silly.
Instead, I’ll be doing this project. FYI, it is through a website to which I am already subscribed, so it might ask you to subscribe. Suffice it to say, it’s a tote bag. And it doesn’t require canvas, thus my previous mini-rant.
In other news, I am working on a last minute bit to add to my brother’s Super Birthday Project, but I will keep it under wraps until I reach a decision. I also still have to make that valance.
Work might be getting even MORE hectic soon, but I will soldier on. So many craft projects and so little time! I apologize for this cop out post.
Also, because I don’t say it enough, thank you to all you folks who have subscribed to my blog. I spend most of my life feeling like I’m talking to myself, so it’s nice to know that at least a small handful of folks in the world are amused by my…well, trials and tribulations as well as successes. So thank you for sharing them with me, and I hope you enjoy!
