Last Sewing Project Before the Festival
Things got busy last week before the festival and I didn't have a chance to show you the last bag I made before I had to finally quit sewing for a few days. My hubby does "inventory" on my bags before the holidays and before shows.
Him: "You got enough, Bellas?"
Me: "Only 2 left."
Him: "Sugar and Spices?"
Me: "Down to 1."
Him: "You really think that is going to be enough?"
Me: "No, but I only have today and tomorrow left to sew."
Him: "You need to have at least one to display for orders."
Me: "I know, it's not my first rodeo."
Him: "What happens if someone buys the last Sugar and Spice?"
Me: "Guess I should try to make another one with the time I have left."
So I did and this blog is about that bag.....but it is also about telling my hubby he was right. I know, I know...it is hard sometimes but I sold what would have been my last Sugar and Spice bag early on in the festival and I would have been Sugar and Spiceless! Thanks, honey!
Thanks to Christine, too, at Chris W Designs because these two bags continue to be my best sellers.
You can buy the Sugar and Spice pattern here and the Bella pattern here.
Speaking of these 2 patterns, a Bella bag that I made last November or December inspired this Sugar and Spice Bag. I used the same 2 fabrics on Bella and loved the combo. I thought it would be just as great on the Sugar and Spice. Both bags give you that "peek" of the lining and I like it to be a little unexpected.
That's all for today. I'm working on some orders from the festival and I can't wait to tell you the story behind one of the orders that I am doing. I'll share that on my Around the World Blog on Monday.
