I think I’m still suffering from PADD, aka project attention deficit disorder. So I had this wonderful plan to make a dress. I bought all of the notions on Saturday morning, I was ready to start… but in the end, I did nothing. Well, almost nothing. I cut and started to sew a leather handbag, using a pattern from the most recent Knipmode magazine, the one represented by the big tan suede bag with a big bow. I got stuck at the part where I need to attach the handles together. I’m fully fluent in Dutch, but for some reason I just don’t get it. On top of that, my machine was finding 4 layers of leather a bit too much to handle, I was getting tired too, so I just put everything aside and went for a long nap.
And Sunday? Meh… I did nothing, too.
So much for my big sewing plans.
On the other hand, on Friday a colleague asked me to make him a tools roll for his upcoming cycling trip. That’s all I needed to get my imagination rolling. We talked about his wishes, dimensions and looked at existing rolls for inspiration. I came up with this paper model:
The paper model received an instant seal of approval, so I went ahead and made a fabric model, in some denim remnants I had:
Instant seal of approval received too! We just need to discuss the final modifications today and I’ll carry on with making the real deal, out of the huge leather remnants I have from my leather hand bag. I think I should be able to finish it today or tomorrow, so I’ll be sure to post pictures once I’m done.
And the dress? Well, it will probably wait until next weekend…
