Official Start is Saturday, April 25. If you want to be able to jump right in, I suggest you have your pattern pieces printed and cut out, and read the pattern at least once. Gather up the supplies you need, if you are having trouble deciding on fabrics, post it in the group, we love looking at everyone else's pretty fabrics and giving advice!
|(One of my fabric choices - would be a very fun purse!)|
April 25-May 1: Cut out all pieces, fuse all interfacing
May 1-May 8: Steps 1-9 - outside pockets and zippers, straps and strap tabs, inside pockets
May 8-May 18: Step 10 - top zipper - this is the trickiest part, but it's not that bad and we are here to help! Final steps, 11 and 12 - putting it all together
The sew along will finish May 18, so be sure to have pictures of your finished bag in the album by May 18 to be entered for the 'best in show' prize! Plus there will be a few randomly chosen winners from all the people commenting and posting in the event, so don't be shy!
This purse is a relatively quick sew, so I may even have time to make a second one, but picking the fabric will probably take me longer than actual sewing. Here's some of my newest of my choices, I just can't decide!
