So glad I got my Juki back. The story ended well - they figured out what was wrong (after I brought in an example of what it was doing), and fixed it with no extra charges, and did it right away. Hooray!
So I got right back to work and I finished this gorgeous Weekender for my awesome mom.
She liked my pink dandelion one, but it was kind loud for her, so we went with a nice gray one. I added the yellow just to liven things up a smidge.
And the zippy pockets inside are aqua, for a little splash of color inside.
And then I was so productive I got my niece's Sophia bag done too!
I really love this pattern. Amy Butler might have a love for interfacing, and it's challenging, but I just LOVE how her patterns turn out. The directions are always so clear and easy to follow. It's great!
This is the Sophia pattern, but I wanted a bigger one, so I enlarged it 129% at FedEx and it's just right.
My niece loves elephants, but I thought they might be too cutesy on the outside, so they are hiding in the lining. They are "stealth-ephants" as my husband calls them.
A zippy pocket, and another one on the inside makes it just right for a carry-on, or overnight bag. It's almost as big as a Weekender!
Linking up with Amanda Jean and Sarah - have a great weekend!
