valentine clutch


I AM GOING TO POST THIS BAG LITTLE BY LITTLE
LET ME START BY SAYING
I USED TO BE REALLY CRAFTY, YOU KNOW SOAP/CANDLES/JEWLERY I HAVE HAD A LOT OF COMPLIMENTS ON MY JEWLERY AND PURSES OVER THE YEARS I REALLY HAVE ENJOYED IT SO I THINK MAYBE ILL GET BACK TO CRAFTING AND TRY NOT TO START SO MANE QUILTS (THAT TAKE SO LONG TO FINISH) MARY ANN CALLED AND MY SUMMER IN THE PARK IS QILTED ILL PICK IT UP MONDAY THAT BEING SAID I STARTED THIS BAG A FEW DAYS AGO I GOT THE PATTERN FROM PELLON  SEWSWEETNESS MADE THE PATTERN
NOW I HAVE TO TELL YOU THAT THE PATTERN FROM THIS SITE IS RATHER CONFUSING AND AFTER READING THE INST. AT LEAST 10 TIMES AND TAPING THE PAGES TOGETHER TO MAKE THE PATTERN I WENT BACK TO HER ORIGINAL TUTORIAL AND WAS A LITTLE MORE HELPFUL SHE GAVE A MAEASURE FOR INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR THE HANDLE IS ROUND NOT OVAL AND THERE IS ABOUT A INCH DIFFERENCE IN SIZE BUT THE INSTRUCTIONS ARE SO MUCH MORE CLEAR AND IT WOULD BE EASY TO USE THE HANDLE PATTERN FOR EITHER ONE EASILY ROUNG OR OVALI HAD AN ALLERGY ATTACK STARTED EARLY THIS MORNING AND THEY LAST ALL DAY SO NOT MUCH SEWING WITHOUT SNEEZING AND NSE RUNNING
I HAVE IT ALMOST ALL THE PIECES SEWN AND NOW I CANT DECIDE ON THE BUCKLE I DONT HAVE ON I DO HAVE D RINGS THAT I CAN USE
I THINK ITS GOING TO BE REALLY CUT WOULD I MAKE ANOTHER YOU MIGHT ASK I DONT KNOW IT USES 3 KINDS OF INTERFACING SHAPEFLEX/DECORBOND AND FUSIBLE FLEECE A BIT OF OVERKILL I THINK 2 LAYERS OF A MEDIUM WEIGHT MIGHT BE GOOD ENOUGHBUT YOU NEED THE STURDINESS TO MAKE A FINISHED LOOKING BAG NOT FLOPPYAND SOME KIND OF BLING FOR THE OUTSIDE I THINK NEEDS SOMETHINK SHINEY I MIGHT FINISH IT BY TOMARROW IM GONNA TRY TO GET A BLOCK QUILTED TONIGHT ALSO
