I hope you all had a lovely long weekend (or just a lovely regular ol’ weekend). After spending far more time than I like in the kitchen, I needed to de-stress with some happy-making sewing (and pie, lots and lots of pie). I am now flying off a major sewing buzz over this thing of beauty.
…like I said…
This is my second Mommy’s Poppins Bag. This go-around, I took photos of the process for the forthcoming pattern. Yes, it has been a long time coming, but pattern writing always takes eons longer than I expect. If you go by ikat bag’s pattern writing steps, I’m only on step 11 or 12 of 30. I hope to have this thing done B.B. (Before Baby), but right now Christmas is getting in the way.
I am spending my evenings elbow deep in fleece sewing up bathrobes for my kids and getting all weepy over how long the robes for my older two are. I am basically weepy over anything involving children and babies these days. Big Hormonal Mess over here.
What’s on your sewing table? Any recent finishes? Or are you just diving in to Christmas projects?
Oh! Fleece bathrobe! That’s a brilliant Christmas present idea for my daughter. What pattern are you using? Is fleece a bugger to sew with?
I love sewing with fleece! It is an incredibly “forgiving” fabric. The only trouble is that it can get bulky with all the layers. I find a Size 14 “Stretch” needle works the best.
The patterns I’m using are McCall’s 4643 and Simplicity 3575.
That bag is AMAZING! I can’t believe how perfect it looks! I love the shape so much and the reinforced corners are so chic!
I’ve already done an apron and I have a tree skirt to finish, then it’s on to sewing projects. Ironically, they are all your patterns – 4 airplanes, 3 pajama eaters, and 2 suitcases… Then something that’s not your pattern… I’m gonna finish my skirt tonight!
You are on fire! (and pictures please?)
I will be taking pictures of everything and adding them to my FB profile. If I make a pattern item you like, feel free to take it… 🙂
What an awesome bag! Love the frame opening. I have one of those frams waiting to be used.
Good luck with your Christmas sewing!
I just squealed upon reading that there would be a Mary Poppins bag pattern some day. I LOVE that bag and LOVE your patterns even more, so I really can’t wait!
I am so so anxious for this pattern!!!! I’m due in July and I can’t find any other diaper bag I like and I just know I can’t do this without a pattern. I’m just wondering what you anticipate the cost for the pattern to be?
I came across this bag on pinterest. I LOVE it. When will you be selling the pattern for it? It’s the best shape and if it can be adjusted to any size I’m in!
