Pouch-A-Long Stalled.

The pouch was going great..  until I kind of botched up the top.  The all important part... where the FRAME goes on!  I have some ideas of how to fix it, but that may have to be put on hold.


I will be AWOL for a couple of days, as my aunt is in the hospital, quite seriously ill.  My dad and two of his brothers have flown out to see her.  So I don't know when my little pouch will get fixed and finished.  I still have high hopes for it.  I love it so far.


But I don't think I'd use extra heavy pellon again, though.  Plus, I interfaced the outside, instead of the lining.  I love how sturdy the pouch is, but when I sewed the lining and was trying to turn it, it was like trying to turn a wet suit inside out!!  


LIVE SEW and LEARN. :o)

Oh I love the colors of your pouch!!!! We must revive it. Now, what exactly happened? You interfaced the outside and not the lining...okay that is what I prefer to do. And what exactly happened to the top? We will have to catch up once you can come back refreshed. I will be thinking of your Aunt...

The pouch looks gorgeous, I'm sure you'll work it out! So sorry to hear about your Aunt, sending you good thoughts xxx

Sorry to hear about your aunt.

As for the pouch, I always interface the outer rather than the lining, but yeah, turning out something that's been 'pelloned' is, um, challenging (here's a tip, don't try it with a barrel shaped handbag either - don't ask me how I know lol)

Praying that your aunt gets well soon. Your bag is going to look so cute! Learning to make my own handbags is on my list of to-do's. Just haven't tried it yet.

Sometimes when something doesn't work the way we intended it causes us to be even more creative. I am sure you will come up with a wonderful solution! My thoughts are with you and your family.
