There are a few projects I've been trying to finish. Birthday projects with finite deadlines. I'm not always good with deadlines. My mom's birthday was yesterday and she had a very specific request: A scripture bag for her extra large, can't read things up close any more, scriptures (gonna happen to all of us I'm afraid). So, without a pattern and using fabrics from the stash, this is what I managed to come up with.
I used a Waverly decorator fabric for the outside. I love the texture and the added weight. I used interfacing on everything for extra strength.
She wanted a long, over-the-shoulder strap, but I only had enough fabric for one side. I cut up an old pair of brown corduroy trousers for the other side. The multi-textural thing is working for me.
(You can also see the Olive colored dresser I made over a while back and never got around to blogging about)
Happy (& relieved) to say her scriptures fit perfectly.
My oldest daughter is having a birthday next week. I'm hoping to have this finished in time...
I Hope you all have a Happy Easter!
