/scissor tote


I made a bag to carry more things I'm making!
Sadly, it's currently housing a freshly-frogged knitting project.

I bought this fabric more than a year ago at a local quilting shop with the intention to make a sewing/knitting/grocery bag, so of course, I just now made a sewing/knitting/grocery bag.
Why I hadn't spared the 30 minutes before I do not know!

Thought I would at least show this bag a little respect by photographing it and giving it a humble little post after ignoring the poor fabric like that.

Here's to you, cute scissor quilting cotton!

Oh, I'm so excited to have sewn something for myself! I really couldn't have picked a better project than Grainline's Archer. The fit is perfectly relaxed (I can't stand fitted women's button-ups), and the pattern is so expertly done. Big time kudos to Jen.

Maybe too psyched about this shirt? Nope, impossible.

I was originally planning to make view A (plain back), because I'm not really a flouncy kind of gal. But as soon as this super soft, drapey cotton arrived, the decision was made for me. It was begging for the gathered tail. I think it hangs quite nicely, even if it's a little weird with this print.

Note: After applying that last link I realized that I used the exact same adjectives as Mood... ACCURACY!

Aside from that huge decision between views A & B, I made no alterations whatsoever!
Now for an Archer dress, short-sleeved Archer, plaid flannel Archer...
