|This is me getting fancy with my photo shoots.|
We’re halfway through January, and I’m pleased to report that I’m halfway to meeting my One Monthly Goal! I survived sewing my third Cargo Duffle Bag. Honestly, it wasn’t that big of a deal. Installing the zipper, hammering the snaps, sewing through all those layers—in the end, it was all doable. And that is good, because January’s goal was to make two of them. One down, one to go!
Previous posts have covered my thoughts on this free pattern by Anna Graham, of Noodlehead, so I’ll just inundate you with pretty pictures of this latest finish. (To read about my first bag, click here. To read about my second, including details on how I modified the pattern, click here.)
|I used a Denyse Schmidt print for the exterior and a Carolyn Friedlander print |
for the accents.
|I love how the straps are constructed!|
|This little bit (is there a technical term for it?) is my own addition, to aid in |
opening and closing the zipper.
|I chose to line this bag instead of binding the unfinished edges, per the pattern. |
Another Denyse Schmidt print adorns the lining of both the main compartment
and the exterior pockets.
I’m hoping you have some pretty pictures of finishes to show with us, too. Add them to this week’s Brag About Your Beauties Pageant. : )
