So I started off with these:
Which I sewed together to become this:
And then because the back was showing every sign of looking a bit boring I did this:
So far so good. Until I assembled the purse and it's all wonky like the first pouch. Bad enough for me to ring my hands in despair. My partner may cry if she gets this. But it's not going to be easy to unpick and repair now. I can't face the thought of starting over and messing it up again. So it looks like it's back to the drawing board. None of my other pouches have gone like this so I can only assume that's it's the addition of the zipper end tabs - which I don't normally do. It can't be Anna's pattern. I mean come on this lady wrote the 241 tote pattern and tonnes of pretty little gathered clutch pouches can be found on flickr and blogs so it must be my crap sewing skills.
FFS I can't even take a picture of it without it being blurry!
If you want me I will be doing something easy like:
or tickling a wolf on it's tummy
Not something as dangerous as thinking I can make something for a swap without it looking so blurgh. To make matters worse I am signed up to a further 3 swaps. Partners be afraid very afraid....
In the mean time I'm going to run around the living room for a bit screaming ok?!
