I did finish challenge #1, I just don’t have any good pics at the moment, so that will come later.
The challenge for February is a bag, easy right? I LOVE making bags, they’re such great projects for making you feel accomplished.
But there’s one tiny stipulation on this challenge… it has to be from a bag pattern you’ve never used before.
Therein lies the challenge for me! While I love to make bags I’ve only ever used a pattern for that really cute lunch bag I made several times from this great tutorial. All my other myriad (slight exaggeration, but only slight) of totes and bags and purses I’ve just winged because… bags!
But with the intention of following some directions I mostly cut out the “Dubstepper” messenger bag by Robert Kaufman.
So I’m going to finish that (which also counts toward challenge #8, finishing a WIP!), hopefully.
That’s the Dubstepper, I think I’m going to modify the flap though…
I’m trying to find patterns that will work with fabrics I got to make bags, and then I’m going to try to just make as many bags as I can squeeze in for this month. Of course, that was also my intention last month, to make several accessories, but I only got one done so we’ll see! I quite like this bag:
And a friend asked me for an overnight/weekend bag. So maybe?
It’s a free pattern from Noodle Head so bonus on the not spending money!
I actually have a lot of ideas already, so it’s more challenging to find a pattern that meshes with my vision!
Hopefully progress posts soon.
