How exciting! My first custom order for my Etsy Shop. Glad it's finished. You know Murphy's Law can take over at any time during a project. Fortunately for me, it all went without too much trouble. (Well, not too much anyway.) The customer liked the shape of the bag, but preferred a different fabric. So she chose this great Amy Butler "Lotus" fabric. I can see why Little Amy is so hot right now. It's lovely.
It's a great feeling when someone thinks your work is something special. Keeps you keepin' on! That's what sewing does for me. It always makes me feel good when I finish a project I can take pride in. Don't get me wrong, I've had my share of bloopers, but with each disaster you learn something new. You get a different perspective, a new idea, pick up a new trick, and lo and behold, you've got a winner. I almost hate to see this one go. I learned a lot about inserting grommets. Always a pain in the neck before, I've found a slick little gadget that makes it a snap. I'll post a little blog about this gadget on another day, so stay tuned.
I'd like to know what you think, so please comment. Have a happy Sunday.
