Sublime Bag

3 June 2017

Finally I was able to make a Bag of the Month Club – February 2017. It is a Sublime Bag, pattern is from www.sewsweetness.com. Along the way of sewing this bag, I missed or I might have ignored some part that I didn’t read on the instruction so I just remedied it at the last moment. Not only that I accidentally cut the portion of the zipper tape and guess what it was where my zipper pulls are located, oh my I almost seam ripped the zipper. Good thing I was able to save it and pass the zipper pulls on the opposite side. The last problem that I encountered at the end was how to sew up and close the part where the zipper tape ends on both sides. Definitely that won’t pass through my machine so I did it by hand then. Just want to mention that the zipper I bought is not the usual thing that is used on a bag, well what I am trying to say is that both zipper pulls closes up when it is separated as in resting on both end of the zipper tape unlike the usual bag zippers, it closes up when they meet up in the middle.

 

Lilium Laptop Bag

24 April 2017

A Lilium Laptop Bag, pattern is from www. sewsweetness.com. I should have done this four months ago meant to be used by my eldest daughter for her elocution because she needs a good cushioned bag for her laptop when she will bring it to school just to present slides for her report together with a classmate. It is hard for me to construct this bag because of all the thickness going on inside, well mainly with the presence of the foam inside already but the rest it was ok. Even with the difficulties that I encounter this is already my third laptop bag would you believe. What matters is how will it look like at the end.
