The above class started today and I’m already inspired—see!
I used Crystal Wilkerson’s You Are Awesome Mini Kit. Clicking the above picture will take you to the exact item at JessicaSprague.com.
I get a lot of inspiration by visiting blogs and finding new tutorials. Recently, I was inspired by this lined zippered make-up bag tutorial by FlossieTeacakes' blog and could not wait to try it. I’ve done quite a few make-up bags in my little time of sewing, but this one was different—see the covered ends to the zipper—in the tutorial? Well, I tried the tutorial, but I didn’t get it exactly right—I’m thinking my zipper was not exactly 8-inches, which was recommended in the instructions, so I will try it again. Below is how mine turned out the first time. Not too shabby. Also, I put a spin on it. I printed one of the papers from the The Queen of Quirk’s Sitting Pretty Paper Pack onto Fabric-Stick and used that for my fancy fabric in the tutorial. I’d been keeping my eye out for a tutorial that would use that particular print. Clicking the below picture will take you to the exact item at JessicaSprague.com.
TIP: When using Fabric-Stick, I like to iron fusible fleece on the back as my interfacing—I love how the finished piece feels.
This little bag will be going places . . . right into my purse and along for the ride.
