When Dog Under My Desk had her sale last week, I ordered the Make Me Up Before You GoGo and Get Carded patterns. I have been wanting to try these two patterns for awhile and it seemed the perfect time to go ahead and do it.
I tackled the Make Me Up bag first since it seemed a bit more challenging. And, it definitely proved to be so. The bag itself is quite easy and the instructions are wonderfully written, but it's the binding that I found difficult. It's not difficult to sew on, but I've always had a hard time stitching it down by machine and having it look good/acceptable. I finally gave up on that for the side bindings and sewed them by hand. After three failed attempts, I was able to sew the top/zipper binding by machine, but I can't say that I'm happy with it. This is not a problem with the pattern... this is a problem with me! :)
It's a nice roomy little bag and I think it's perfect for sewing or embroidery supplies. It's got two pockets on one side of the interior and a zipper pocket on the other. It measures 6" tall by 10" wide by 3" deep. I'm happy I made it!
