One of my work friends is having a birthday party on the weekend, at a Roller Derby match. It reminded me that I had a metre of super cool Roller Derby girl fabric stored away in the stash bins, so I pulled it out and made a little purse, today. I didn't use a pattern, just made it up as I went. If I redid it, I would change some things, like the angle of the folds in the fabric, and the width and circumference of the top band... but it's still pretty cute as it is.
Sewing was an adventure, by the way. I was cutting and piecing fabric on my coffee table, for pete's sake. And if that isn't bad enough, I had to set up the sewing machine on our little rolling butcher block. I really need to find a studio space somewhere or something.
Living life somewhere in the grey area between Liz Lemon and Nancy Botwin. I live with my beloved Heterosexual Life Mate (HLM), no kids, two beautiful feline ladies, and what I can only assume are self-replenishing stacks of fabric and yarn.
