This bag looks like it could be a great bag. I really like how it turned out except for the handles. Too short!!!! I think I did an oopsie. The pattern did look small and I did wonder if it needed enlarging but couldn't see that mentioned anywhere. What I did see was a statement saying that the bag measures ....input some figures as I have forgotten.........I measured the pattern and it fit the measurements stated. But I think I misinterpreted WHERE I should have been measuring from!!!
My fault! I am really mad at myself because I also tried to be clever and cut out four of these bags before making up the first to see how things go!!!!
Please help me and advise me on what I can do to salvage this poor bag. The only idea I can think of is to cut off the handle and add a tab and one of those circle O rings to try and lengthen the straps.
I wanted to show the lining as well. Beautiful blue. I think I love the colour blue!! :)
I will leave you with some fantastic news! Well it's fantastic to me because the postie arrived today.
I wasn't even expecting a parcel for another week and was extremely surprised to find my parcel from Cyndi of Bluebirdswing had arrived.!!
The postie also thought he would tell me I have had another package delivered and left in my carport. On closer inspection he was pointing to a bag of potting mix I picked up earlier from Bunnings!! I am still shaking my head and muttering WTF over that one. He also took my "Wow! That was quick!" comment about the parcel arriving so soon as personal praise! As if he was the only kog in the postal delivery service from the good US of A to Australia!! lol
I will post about Cyndi's package and what was in it tomorrow. I spent too long touching and drooling over the goodies she sent and am now too tied to post anymore. I think my night owl of a hubby has beat me to bed. Not good!! He snores and I have to fall asleep first!! lol
