Aside from working on the taxes, creativity has taken a backseat this week. Haha, just kidding, IRS!
But, before starting the taxes, I finally finished my Two Zip Hipster from Dog Under My Desk. This pattern was easy to follow and it’s purely my own fault that I messed up some of the cutting. Luckily, the mistakes weren’t anything too major. Seriously, there was a lot of attention to detail in the pattern, and I recommend it.
Here is the finished product:
Ms. Dog Under My Desk wisely advises against choosing directional fabric for this project, but did I listen to her? Nope, and I think the different directions of the front pocket and main part of the bag just make it even more unique! Just kidding… I seriously would have made it the right way if I were paying attention.
Here’s the inside, which is a different color and has a pocket that you can personalize. I also chose a different color for this zipper. As I was putting it together, I was worried that it wouldn’t be big enough for my daily use, but I am pleasantly surprised with how much unnecessary stuff I can cram into here!
That’s it for this week, although I do have one more finished project to share soon. It is a belated birthday gift to a very good friend who reads this blog, but it is finally in the mail. I’ll post pictures when it has been received.
