Months and months ago, I pinned a cute bag made to carry around two dolls. I had intended to sew three of them (one for each of the girls) but I've found that I can't sew three of the same project in a row or I begin to feel like a factory and sewing should be fun. So I have one done, for Allie. Anna has already informed me that any bag that I make for her needs to have zebras or zebra stripes on it. Okay, got the memo!
I quilted it. I have this thing with quilting now.
I thought I was being clever by sewing in these elastic seat belts but I cut them a bit too big. Grammy has suggested just sewing them shorter in the front but I haven't gotten around to that yet.
So while this project isn't necessarily difficult, it took me a full weekend to complete. (I didn't use a pattern either, just winged it.) As you can probably imagine, I fit sewing in whenever I can, except when I neared the end of this project. I told Rich that I needed to be alone and hid in the basement to finish it. I just needed to be done with it at that point.
"Thank you, Mommy. I love it!"
"Can I use it to carry around my stuffed animals?"
"Can I bring it to the library?"
(Library tote bags are on my never-ending sewing list. So many projects, so little time.)
