I bought the Belle Baby Bag pattern from Swoon Patterns:
Doesn't it look smart? I just had to have it. I knew, though, that to get that polished look from the pattern photo that I'd need to venture into the world of vinyl. So I did!
|Not too shabby for a first timer!|
Now I've been hoarding this yard of "germy" looking fabric (isn't that what it reminds you of?) for quite some time now, and thought it would look nice in this bag.
What ended up happening, though, is that I improperly joined the pattern pieces together and wasted the yard of fabric! So, lesson learned. If you don't understand a step in the pattern, just suck it up and ask for help. It just might save you a yard or two of fabric!
As I write this post, I'm all but done with this project (I know, I know), so the big reveal will come (including the alternate fabric!) as soon as I can get some pictures uploaded. Linking to Let's Bee Social and Finished or Not Friday. Until then, God Bless!
