I want to cry.

This does not look like the one in the book.
It might look okay if you were driving past really fast... in a snowstorm... at night.

But get a little closer...

I don't have it in me to take it apart to try to fix it. At least not right now.
This bag was actually physically PAINFUL to make. It hurt my hands and shoulders to shove all the layers through my machine. 

And then I flipped it right side out thinking, "It's all going to be worth it!"

And it wasn't.


  1. Oh sweetie- that sucks. Not the bag but the way you're feeling. Stuff it somewhere dark and forget about it. (the bag not your feelings )

  2. oh, i hate it when that happens!!!!! I agree with shay. stuff it somewhere if you need to be free of it. the good thing is, you tried a new pattern (right?)

  3. That is the worst feeling, isn't it? Here's a suggestion - give it to a toddler! Some little girl will think it's the most gorgeous thing she ever saw and play with it until it wears out! There are some bag patterns that I will never do again or buy one from the same designer - they are just ridiculously difficult to make and not worth the hassle. Chalk it up to experience and move on! But find a toddler and make this one all worth while!

  4. I can't say anything more encouraging than what every one else said, but I would agree with Andrea~ new pattern, check! Make it again? No! On to the next!!


Got something to say?
