WIP Wednesday/Thursday - Insanity Abounds

I signed up for a fun swap in the Blue Calla Sewing Group on Facebook, and instead of picking one pattern and making it, I decided to try to mass produce the purse in a bunch of fun fabrics! The pattern is the Magnolia Mini Messenger, but I think it's perfect sized to carry everyday!
Stormtrooper will have vinyl and Ariel will be all fabric

Bags 1 and 2 will be Storm Trooper and Ariel, 3 will be the actual swap bag using Tula Pink fabric, and 4 will be another Tula Pink one, in case I decide I like it better than the swap one... Did I mention the swap bag has to be in the mail in 20 days? That's plenty of time!  I'm hoping to try out a few different interfacing methods to see how I like it the best...the pattern only calls for shape flex, which would give it a nice soft finish, but sometimes I like the stiffness of foam!
I'm pretty sure this will be the actual swap bag....

I love the Tula Pink Trees of Life fabric!
Not much else has been in progress this week, other than some adorable finger puppets and other random Etsy orders...  Of course I had to catch the cold going around at work, but I don't have time to get sick!
All the texture is done with the stitching, takes a while but looks amazing! From Ohana Applique Designs

  • Stuffed slime for birthday party - stitching a few more, then stuffing and sewing shut...
