I tried really hard. I was so overwhelmed with the excitement of having a new machine that (gulp) sews a straight line without me having to hold my breath for fear of the tension getting all screwed up and whatnot, that I could not concentrate and come up with a project to work on. I had promised the Bigger One that I would make her a tunic top out of some of that Amy Butler Chrysanthemum fabric, but I forgot that I was out of interfacing and couldn't finish the neckline.
And then I thought I would try my hand at bermuda bag covers, only to realize that the pattern I bought for my new handles does not include instructions on how to affix the darned buttons and lining to the handles first... only how to make slipcovers. So, in the always appropriate words of Bill the Cat, ppphhhhffffbbbbbllllt.
I stood over my fabric trunk and freaked out Mr Pink.
MR Pink: "You okay?"
"Yes, I'm fine."
MR Pink: "But you're just standing there."
"I know, it feels weird. I'm not used to being still."
MR Pink: "You have a weird look on your face."
"Well, I want to work on something really bad. I want to sit down and make something beautiful, but I feel like I am one supply short of every project I want to do."
[MR Pink lets this one slide. It's just too easy.]
MissChris stumbles upon a white placemat in the trunk.
"I know! I'll turn this placemat into a tote bag! That will be fast!"
MR Pink: "Err. OK. Because you need another bag..."
Whatever. I can always use bags. And so...
Voila. 20 minutes later. Perfect for our upcoming Hawaii holiday. Even MR Pink said so.
hee hee. Just realized that I used this lotus fabric on the last project I posted. Wow. I look like a creepy serial AB crafter or something.
