That's what I was doing for a few hours last night. See, we learned how to make these cute little bags at my quilting class. I didn't write down any directions, I just made the bag with my class. On the way out of the store I bought a couple of sheets of interfacing so I could make a few at home. Last night I finally got around to trying to make one of these little bags all by myself. I got to the final step and was BAFFLED as to how to finish it. Complete blank. I tried all kinds of stuff and picked it apart and tried again. Boooo. This morning I called my teacher (can you believe I did that?!) and confirmed that I am sooooooooooooooooo dumb. Here is the finished product:
Cute, huh? The ladies in my class were doing all kinds of crazy things with theirs, but I'm more concerned about using all these fabric scraps at my house than I am about buying more embellishments. Since the dumbness was behind me, I timed myself making another one just now. It took an hour and nine minutes - and that's with several interruptions and not being able to find a big enough scrap at first. A-ha! Take that, cute little bag.
P.S. Happy Birthday to Brian. I'm celebrating by sewing since he had to spend it at scout camp.
