Haven't hemmed those pants yet but will soon. It's been a mishmosh of finishing our taxes and spring cleaning lately. I did decide last night, as a direct result of my cleaning/re-org, that I wanted to make two bags. One will be inspired my my Chanel Jacket which I have been working on. Suffice it to say that I will never use the Chanel bag with the Chanel jacket, just too matchy matchy. But on its own, I think the Chanel bag, aka, CB, will be pretty cute. My inspiration were two pockets I made for the jacket that I decided were too small of a scale but couldn't throw out. I barely sqeaked out enough boucle to make the bag. The gusset and loops will be faux leather.
Lately bags that are "long" have really seemed particularly attractive to me. I have never made this design specifically for myself. If you read the notes you can see that my first bag had a slight mistake that I didn't notice till the end. Oddly enough, it all went together and looked fine although I did have a bit of a struggle. So my dumdum notes tell me the curve of the bag goes on the top and the sharp corners go on the bottom. I know....
The CB will be like the pink view and the pussy willow bag, aka PB, will have no pocket and a handle similar to the top left bag.
I am really excited about making these. I have done bagathons before and they can be so productive. I've committed this pattern to oaktag as I know I will definitely be making it again. Shouldn't take long to finish these. I will also get the hems on my Mud Season pants eventually and get a pic up too. Just not feeling the excitement at this point so be patient with me...Bunny
