I will, I will, I will finish the duffles. There were actually 4 to do and one is done. One is half done, another is cut out and waiting, I can't remember about #4.
One on the right is not finished, No lining.
But the one on the left is complete.
I had trouble with the piping on the ends of the bags. Perhaps practice is what I need. Piping does add a certain je ne sais pas to the duffles. Also to other things.
I think when the lining is added to the bag on left. it will help smooth out the wrinkly piping.
I found the pattern as a tutorial from SewCanDo by way of Sew She Can. I changed the pattern a bit.
#1 I found that lining the straps with the same fleece as the bag made them too difficult to turn right side out. I left the fleece out of the straps. A lighter interfacing though might make them less floppy.
#2 I had to change the way I added the zipper because when I did it like the photo, it didn't work. So I looked at the photo taken after the zip was sewn in and worked backwards.
Otherwise I think they are cute. So hoping to finish all by Thanksgiving.
I have some spinning to do. Well, actually, plying. The spinning's complete. Oops, what I should have said is, 'some' spinning is done.
This one is plied. It's called Salsa Caliente.
The one I need to ply is below. However, I have forgotten it's name.
It's all ready, I just need to do it.
Weaving. Finally got the new warp tied on to the old warp. New experience for me. It worked!
It's tied on but not beamed. I have no photo of that.
What I have is a picture of the start of a new set of towels.
This was meant to be a more sagey green that this or maybe just a deeper hue. It's a Finnish twill pattern.
There are soooooooooooooooo many more projects in my world to be completed. These have been 5 of them.
May God make His Face to shine upon you and give you peace.
