Project 2 Underway

I spent the entire day going through the closet looking for the right beads and charms for the Hippie Bag – of course I did not find what I wanted.  Now I will have to wait until Saturday to go to Michael’s or Joann’s – I’m not brave enough to venture out on Black Friday.

So I have not actually sewn for two days – and I felt myself sinking again.  It’s amazing that something as simple as being creative can lift your spirits.  I will have to do my best to always have something going in the future.

There must have been at least 150 patterns I went through to find my next project, but I finally settled on Simplicity 2617, a bag by designer Autumn Hall.  All of the variations are terrific, but I think I will go with View A, top left:

This view uses three fabrics.  I have many Asian-inspired fabrics and I think they would be perfect for this bag- I know I can find three of them that will look nice together.

With this being a four day weekend for my daughter and her husband, I have four days where I don’t have to babysit- I am really looking forward to it!  I am so fortunate to have a son-in-law and a brother who like to cook, so tomorrow I will be free, except for the eating and clean-up parts of the day.  I will be selecting fabric, determining if I need to get anything extra (so glad I found my huge bag of old zippers while rummaging through the closet!), and reading all the directions to get ready to sew.  I will post fabric choices tomorrow!

Happy Thanksgiving to anyone who may stumble across this blog!
