WOYWW 202

Wednesday's come around so quickly don't they?  Time to be nosy and see what is happening on everyone's craft desk.  If you pop over to Julia's blog and you will see how to join in.

Today I have been sewing - well let me rephrase that, I have been having a go at putting a zip into the lining of one of the bags I am making.  Although I have put a zip in a dress and skirt before, I've never put one in a bag and was a bit daunted so I searched on the internet and found a tutorial which I could follow.

I didn't really manage to clear my desk before I started!  You can see a card on the left that is work in progress but not needed until May so plenty of time!  Behind that on the little easel is a photo of Holly I am waiting to scrap.





The zip is all lined up ready to sew in.


Sewn in - I have to say I am overjoyed how well it has turned out:)


This is the inside of the pocket which is lined with the material I am using for the outside of the bag.



Happy dancing!!!

Maybe I'll see you next week and I will show you the finished bag.  Actually, it's here if you want a peep:)

I love your bag! I used to make my own bags and wallets, and it was so nice, because I could have just what I wanted. So many wonderful crafts, and so little time!

Thanks for the visit, and have a wonderful WOYWW! Kathi #109

Liz Black said...

Me and sewing machines are not a great combination so I'm mega-impressed with your bag! I also tend to start new projects over the top of other ones ... too impatient to tidy up first I think! Thanks for sharing and Happy Woyww Liz@73

You did a great job with that zip! I am afraid I won't even attempt anything that complicated.
