Still no zipper love
OK...so here's my response to Joan's challenge. My Mod, complete with a zipper. My only added rule was that I would use only stuff on hand...except for the zipper. I did have to buy one of those. Nearly completed in one evening. I think I need to add a ring with some fun embellishments from one of the handle tabs, but I have to get the embellishments (beads, ribbons, something else to add interest up there in all that black).
Now that I have semi-successfully installed said zipper, I would like to try my hand at another bag. Thanks, Joan. I hope you are very pleased with yourself. (Note: the easiest way to get me to do something is to present the idea that I probably won't. I like to surprise people almost as much as I like to surprise myself.) I am as wise to your ploy as you are to my weakness, so there. The next thing I'd like to try is the Runaround bag, but I'll have to track down the pattern first. I have some very nice fabrics that I got on my last buying spree at Blossom Quiltworks that would make a lovely little bag when I track down the pattern (and another dang zipper).
