Her bag was my second one and it did go together far faster than my first one which took an entire day and the aid of two of my friends to make it through. We got together on black Friday because none of us were up for shopping in the crowds and Teri had already made one or two before so she was helping guide myself and Roxanne through the process. Without her help I an not sure that the first bag would have gotten made and I know that the second one wouldn't have. My first sew together was a for GMIL and she's been traveling quite a bit to see her great grandson and other relatives so I knew she would use the bag which is why I even dared to try and make it in the first place.Once I made her's I knew more of these bags were in my future and now that I have done this one I am feeling far better about venturing into making other pouches and bags, hopefully with a few less zippers. I wouldn't say my fear of zippers is gone but one thing is for sure -- it surely has been subsided a little during this adventure.
I have a full pinterest board of bags I want to make so let's hope 2015 is the year I make a full scale bag for myself. I think I would like to accomplish this before stash bash because it would be pretty cool to take my things in a bag I made --- like I'm only going to need one bag (hahahaha). So my fellow bag makers, where should I start?
