Don't you hate it when you forget to photograph things? Especially stuff you've made?
Well, maybe that mostly applies to those of us who blog. Making gifts now serves a dual purpose for me...a thoughtful present for a loved one, and something to show y'all.
But then I forget to document them. oops.
Anyway, as I mentioned I didn't make that much this Christmas. As much as I love to, it was totally a good call and helped maintain my sanity.
But I did make this bag for my sister. It's the Abigail Bag from Serendipity Studio. I really love how this turned out. The pattern was great and easy to follow. Since it was a last minute idea, I was hesitant to do a bag with zippered pockets and all, but they were easy.
The one thing I'm thinking for next time around is bag feet. You know what I'm talking about? Those little metal bumps on the bottom of some bags? I've seen them in my local fabric store. I think they'd work well on this bag since it has a nice solid shape and stands up. Since I did it with regular quilting fabric (mostly my Timber collection) they would probably help it last longer.
I also made a super-cute apron for my other sister, but, you guessed it, no pictures.
