The next project in my personal challenge, Project Sewing 101, is called a "doodle bag." The concept of this bag is just adorable, and I've got a special little girl in mind to be the recipient. Our niece will come to visit this summer, and as I've yet to meet her, I thought a fully loaded art bag might be just the thing to break the ice!
I'm kind of impressed with myself as to how well the pocket & flap came out. You may remember I skipped making a pocket in a previous challenge, so this was a totally new skill to me for this project.
I'm pleased that this project afforded me a chance to reuse a pair of jeans that I split (eep) last winter, and am still using up that great stripy canvas I stocked up on and have been using for the last few projects.
One thing that didn't turn out so great is the lining. I love that there's a pocket divider inside, but do you see that big fold over of extra fabric in there? Yea...I guess I'm not such a pro with fitting linings yet. I cut the fabric to the pattern's specifications so I'm not totally sure what happened in the first place. Can anyone out there shed some light on this?
