One of the downsides to living in a smaller town is that we only have one big chain craft store - and it's not JoAnns. *sigh*
Well, I've been trying to work on this diaper bag for someone and I was stuck in limbo. My local craft chain was totally out of the magnetic closure.. for.a.very.long.time!!! So long, that it made me wonder if there is someone in my town that operates a purse/bag making sweatshop.
So I had to pay double the price from somewhere else - but I had to get this bag done.
I finished it during the FNSI. And the person that ordered it - sent me an email asking for another one for someone else. So I need to make another one this week.
Not the best interior picture - but look at those little bunnies! So sweet. It's a personalized Diaper Bag.
After I finished with that - I wanted to start a project with my new "Circa 1934" fabric from Moda. It involves hexigons. I've never worked with hexi's before but they didn't scare me. I was up for the challenge.
AARRRGGGHHHH!!! Cutting these little hexi's about put me in the nut house! And look...
....I didn't get very far. And I don't even want to tell you how long those few took me to cut. I don't have a ruler type hexi template.. or an Accu Quilt thingy.. so I eventually had to walk away and made myself some hot cider.
I could have kept cutting - BUT I was worried that if I don't have them cut right - it will make sewing them even more frustrating. Any quilter knows that accuracy is the key to a nice finished product. Right?
Do you have an Accu Quilt thingy?? Can I come over?
