WIP Wednesday - Onward and Upward!

Can't stop now, I'm the closest to caught up I've been in YEARS!
For a fabric I wasn't totally in love with when I picked it out, this one has been getting a lot of attention!

The latest project that has me scratching my head is a concealed carry Bonnie Bucket Bag.  Not an easy one to add a discrete back pocket, but being the optimist, I was like "Sure, I can make it.  No problem" hahaha, famous last words...  Although I do think I have it figured out finally.  Only took me an extra week of staring at it and trying to do calculations in my head...
To get the nice crisp edge, glue and then leaving it between to acrylic rulers that are wonder clipped together is the best...
The worst that can happen is they don't like it and want a refund and I have an epic Harry Potter bag with a pocket that has velcro inside....So might as well bust it out!

I'm a total geek...when I get the chance!
One other delay was the latest Sci-Fi convention I went to, where I got to meet Gigi Edgley (Farscape and numerous other shows!)  She was just as awesome in person as I hoped, super fun and bubbly!  She's out promoting a music tour/collaberation with her brother and she did a little singing when I got to see her speak.  She can totally sing, so if you are lucky enough to be close to one of her venues, check it out!  One of the other guest was LeVar Burton and he sang the Reading Rainbow song.  My life is complete.
