actually, i didn’t.
i was so geeked off of my idea to make a denim clutch that i didn’t even bother to dust the thing off. i was also so geeked that i didn’t bother to use the zipper foot for my sewing machine to put in the zipper.
can i just say here that i hate hate hate sewing in zippers for some reason? they were the most painful thing for me to do in school when i studied fashion design 50 million years ago.
but that wasn’t the end of my geeked-ness. nope, sure wasn’t. i also didn’t realize my interfacing was double-sided adhesive before i ironed the thing down. that meant that my lining was sticking to the inside of the bag, which just wasn’t going to work. i worked around it, but it turned out a little errrrrr…bulkier than i had planned.
see, sometimes i get so stoked about an idea that i just jump right on in.
yes, i goes in, honey.
full throttle all like, “today is clutch day!!!!!”
it’s pretty needless to add here that my clutch had some bumps along the way, but i think it came out rather snazzy for my first go at it.
