I spent most of yesterday cleaning some shelves in our bed room I hate to admit how much dust had accumulated on the shelves and things on the shelves. So now it is all clean up and I found some sweat shirts that hubby pulled out to get rid of in a pile. Plus 3 old clothes hampers that were plastic and broken on the sides and just needed to be gotten rid of.
Yesterday was trash day so I got things all clean up and put in the appropriate piles and out the door. After getting that done I started doing a bag called a professional tote
I got all the pieces cut except for one the two side panels the fabric I got for the out side of the bag was only 40 inches wide and the pattern yardage was for 45 inch wide an so I am short the two side panels.
I checked with several of the local shops of coarse I got this fabric down in Kalona and that is like a 2 1/2 hour drive one way. No way am I going to do that kind of run for this. So of coarse no one I called carried that line or had that fabric. so I called the shop in Kalona and asked if they could send me some.
The person I was speaking to was looking around the shop and not finding the fabric. I am like thinking great no fabric now what am I going to do but she did find it the last of the bolt had been cut up into some fat quarters thank goodness the pieces I need are only 15 inches and the fat quarters are 20 x so I was saved. I gave her my credit card number and ask to have it sent to me. I am hoping it is in the mail today.
Then I can work on getting this project under way there is some sewing of pockets and parts before I get to the side so that is on the agenda for today and then checking the mail to see if what I need arrived yet.
So time to get at it. Hope you have a great day.
