I had a second bag to finish but didn’t have the motivation to do so. Two weeks ago I started using my finished bag. When my sister in law saw it, she said she liked the format and that she had been looking for one for a long time. As I knew she liked pink, I offered her to give her my second bag. So, here I had my reason and motivation to go ahead and finish up this bag.
This bag also features a fabric by Laura Gunn for Michael Miller. It is from her Poppy collection.
As for the first bag, my closure was inspired by this easy zipper closure tutorial which is part of a series of 10 posts on Nancy Zieman’s blog that are complementing the templates. I find the result better this time. At least, I found it was easier to achieve it this time. Here it is open and close:
My sister in law was at our place last weekend and she was quite happy to receive her bag. So, in the end I find it is fun to make things when you know they are really appreciated.
