my baby's back!

Sorry. I'm just excited, because Eric was gone for 5 days. But he's home. Yay! Hungover on the couch watching football. Just where he belongs.

On to other things...

The Sophia Bag is very close to being done. The sewing machine was fixed Friday, and most of the construction is done. I just need to hand sew (yuck) the lining into the bag. I was trying to figure out if there was a way of machine sewing it in that would look OK, but I think I'm going to suck it up and hand sew it. So it might be awhile before it's actually done done. But I can't wait to show you a picture or two...

You can see the pins holding the lining in still... I'm going to try to finish it by next week to enter it in the U-Handbag Amy Butler contest.

I finished this bag as well. I also regretted the hand stitching. But it comes out nice. Great job on the bag. Sorry to hear about your sewing machine. I would be so sad if my machine broke on me in the middle of a project.

No,it wasn't hard sewing the leather. It was light to med weight. I found it tedious to fuse all the interfacing though. It was the first time working with woven fusible. I definitaly liked it.
