I finished the seven grocery bags for Sunshine’s dim sum party, and it felt like they took foreeeeever! I think they took me about eight hours total, but it was spread out over three days, which made me feel like a sewing snail. :>
(This is my artsy shot, hehe.)
I’m excited to give these as favors, but while I was making them, I kept thinking that I’d be a terrible craft seller! I mean, they took me ages to make, and then I’d be able to charge, what, ten dollars? Which is basically the price of the fabric. Hah!
This apple one is my favorite. I love the aqua hatchy print inside! I rarely rebuy fabric since there’s always new, cute stuff, but I’ve bought this one three times. BUT! I finished sewing the whole bag, shook it out to look at it, and then realized that I’d sewn in one of the handles all twisted! Boo! (I fixed it, but after I took the picture. Can you see the twisted handle?)
I let my mom choose which bag she’d get, and she chose the pezzy print one. I wonder if it was chooser’s bias — one of the first bags I made for her was out of a fat quarter of red pezzy print.
When my mom saw the blue checked bag, she said, “oh, a conservative one.” Good, that’s what I was going for! Just in case someone didn’t like my more colorful ones. 🙂
