|The lurvely tattoo embroidery from Urban Threads, up on my machine's onboard computer screen. Yes, that's right. My sewing machine is smarter than me.|
|The embroidery starting to stitch out. At Warp Speed.|
|The Sewing Assistant decided he didn't particularly like having the embroidery thread lined up in stitching order and set about stuffing it underneath the machine bed and launching some off the worktable. Also at Warp Speed.|
|After removing the Sewing Assistant and hunting down all the spools of thread, the embroidering could resume.|
|Too many ideas! Too little time! AAAUUUUGGGHHHHHH!|
I then came home and decided to go through my fabric stash - again - to see if I had something that would pick up the embroidery colors better.
Three hours later......
So now I have cut out all the parts except for the interfacing and the lining. I have to do a bit of finessing on the upper flap portion; that embroidery is so small in comparison to the rest of the bag it would have gotten lost. I'm planning to frame it up with that home dec trim you can see in the upper part of the photo - that will all have to be done prior to working on the rest of the bag.
Good thing I took a photo of how I wanted to put this all together, because - no big surprise -
|But I kan helpz! I kan press out all the wrinklees! See?|
|Kitteh don' like dis trimz! You shud pick anudder one!|
|Is too long? I iz helping cutz off this end!|
At this rate, I should get the backpack done by about the year 2014.
