I'm still working away on the purse.
Last night I started sewing the squares together...
This is your last peek before it's done.
Today I cut out a template for the lining...
I taped some printer paper together, doubled it, and then outlined the purse shape.
When you open it up, you have a pattern to lay on the material to cut out the lining. I'm just winging this, y'all. I am not a sewer and have no idea what I'm doing as far as the lining goes. I may need to look for a few tutorials online before it's all over. I'll be hand-sewing the whole thing. I'm not going to blow my mind trying to thread a bobbin and all that "technical" sewing machine stuff. Hahaha.
I'll finish sewing the squares together today during the race and probably start the straps too. I'll sew the sides up last after I get the lining sewn in. That's the plan anyway. I still need to get out to JoAnn's this week and see if I can find some lining material that I like. I'll hopefully have a Ta-Dah! later this coming week.
I know...too many baby pictures = bleh!
But...please indulge me today.
There are just a few to share with you...
Kya was so sweet and happy the whole time she was here.
(Her name is pronounced Kiya with a long "i" sound, if you're wondering)
The dresses fit her perfectly!
It cracked me up that Janie was in the background of a bunch of the pictures I took just smiling her ass off. Hee-hee!
The blue dress.
You know I had to get a dog picture in. All of the dogs were good with Kya and just wanted to lick her and follow her around. They'd lick her right in the face and she'd just laugh.
Thank you for a sweet day, Teener!
It was fun.
