I just got back to Atlanta from spending time with my parents in Independence, Missouri. I love visiting them. My Dad is a fabulous cook (more in a later post), and my Mom has a sewing studio, a three story sewing studio. Yes, I have studio envy. One of these days I will get my sewing "area" organized. In the mean time I will satisfy myself with occaisionally wrecking havoc in hers when I get a chance.
Mom has been asking me for an Amy Butler Sunday Sling like the one we made at her house before (see here). My artsy son took that one when he moved out. The next one went to a friend (see here and scroll down). And my replacement bag (here). So I brought the cut out pieces with me, and, once she got busy doing something else, I started ironing the stabilizer onto the straps.
Uh-oh. Mom's gonna be mad.
I was able to peel the upside down strip off, and there didn't seem to be any ill effect from the gluey stuff on the ironing board cover. She didn't even know I'd made a mistake (and I ain't tellin).
Here is the bag with handles attached; and the side pockets.
I like the inside fabric best.
The little pocket inside is called a cell phone pocket, but it is just right to keep lipstick handy. I'd purchased some lip plumper at Ulta (by Two Faced), and I tryed to trick Mom into trying it. You know that stuff feels just like you kissed a shot of lidocaine. Mom didn't go for it (I thought it would be funny and I could post the video on You Tube).
Anywho, I didn't have much fun at Mom and Dad's house until I got this darn bag finished. I swear I'm not making another one.
But I already have it cut out.
