Sewing has been more and more of a passion for me lately. Don’t get me wrong, I love my knitting. But sewing is a different beast. I like the fact that it is all consuming. With knitting, I can still veg in front of my favorite shows on TV. With sewing you are forced to be in your studio, but yourself, focusing only on the project at hand. My mind doesn’t seem to wonder much and I find my focus relaxing. The Pick-A-Pocket purse was a sewing goal I had this year. Something with pockets and interfacing. The project proved a good starter one. So, I started sewing on Cinco de Mayo and had my margarita in tow, of course.
Then I had to have a second margarita and I didn’t think that having a second and operating heavy machinery was a good idea, so I waited until Friday to finish it up. I love the picture below. I love the anticipation before flipping your project right side out!
A super easy project. It is a good size, I’d say a small to medium size bag. I can fit my camera with the zoom lens just snug.
I plan on making this my Summer knitting project bag. The colors match the needle case my Mother made me perfectly.
If you sew this project- please come back and post your links. I’d love to see what others do with it. On a side note, I also made a cover for the nook inside this weekend. I’ll be posting that later this week!
