Despite the fact that I said I wasn't going to sign up for anymore swaps, I did. I signed up for the Goodie Bag Swap. I signed up for the Beginner category so I was able to make something nice and easy. I used the free Phoebe Bag Tutorial from Artsy Crafty Babe. It was a great little pattern and easy to put together. I went with a simple fabric and added some pin tucking to embellish it a bit. I haven't tried pin tucks before and it was really fun. I love the way the detail turned out.
It's lined in a red floral print with a teal pocket.
This picture shows where the pin tucks meet up on the side. I did them randomly on the fabric without marking.
My other project this weekend turned into an accidental skirt for Miss C. I had a great idea in my head for a ruffle skirt for myself. My great idea didn't work out, so one of the ruffles became a skirt for Miss C instead.
Finally, just a little FYI on my Lattice Quilt Tutorial. I received a slightly snarky anonymous comment yesterday about a couple significant errors in my tutorial. After getting over my initial offense from the comment, I realized, that while my information was indeed correct, the way I was showing to cut the triangles for my tutorial was the hard way to do it. This is what caused the confusion for the commenter and possibly others. I have changed my tutorial to reflect this and simplify the process. I just ask if you ever have a question on any tutorial on my site, please email me directly or leave contact info via your profile when leaving a comment so I can get back to you and try to understand why it doesn't make sense. There are bound to be mistakes. Good feedback helps me correct any.
