I just got an idea yesterday that I needed a cute travel bag. So I overthought it for awhile And decided to make the Aragon Bag, a pattern by Sew Sweetness.
Well this fabric is just pretty darn awesome. At first I called her Mary, then I figured out she is Our Lady of Guadalupe. But I am just tickled that she now has a green zipper passing through her breasticular area. I’m pretty sure I’m going to like this bag. Though I don’t think it’s big enough for a weekend getaway. And in an astonishing turn of events, the darling Miss O declared her undying love for the project in it’s infancy. I think she thinks it should be hers. There might be a tussle.
Okay. This dude just plain makes my day. The guy on the right, the one with the hella good hair/feather headdress. And how ’bout that skeletal dude with the shot, the one who looks like he’s wearing a zipper pull as a monocle? But really, you should check out the zippers. There is something intrinsically satisfying about having awesome, colorful zippers sitting around just waiting to be inserted. In fabric. Through Mayans.
I think this might be a whole bag tomorrow. And I know just the person to model it for the photo shoot.
Stay crafty, my friends.
