Friday Finish: The Giveaway Weekender!

I'm so grateful that the winner of my Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Weekender is a patient woman. I got hit with a ton of medical issues in June and it totally threw me off my sewing game.

But things are getting figured out (that's a whole 'nother post) and I'm back at my machine. Although moving that piano has messed up my back!

But here she is! A patchwork Weekender bag, made with Aloha Girl by Fig Tree. With one specially pieced pocket: Mini Stitch.

I've also updated my "Tips and Tricks" on my tutorial page. I learned a little bit more about making this bag. This time, skipped stitches were a plague! Isacord Polyester thread to the rescue!

Checking this girl off the 3QFAL list. Now to finish my Cousin's Weekender!
