Keep on trying

Yesterday evening I was exhausted from work. Once I had decided to make a bag for my birthday neighbour I got soon in a better mood! I loved to combine different fabric samples for the front. The small stripes are Paul Smith's. The bag was almost finished, I thought.
Today only the zipper had to be added. Do you recognize this: party started at 1 p.m, would last till 5 p.m. I, again, 'only' had to add the zipper. But actually I didn't know how to. And, as a like-to-be-autodidact, just started and tried out. Due to timepressure it didn't work out. In the end I searched for a how-to on internet. Still, at 3 p.m. I sadly declared this bag for failed. And quickly went for a cold glass of white wine in our common garden. Dear Cariene, please be patient. There will be an improved one soon. Wine and food were delicious.

oh how wonderful it is to know that I'm not the only one that waits until the day of to finish a gift project that is a first time project. :)

and that bag is just adorable! I love how the straps are both on the back like that.. it would make a great travel/passport pouch.

I've been there, too. Maybe this is helpful? I used this tutorial when I made the hip bag. thhttp://projectsbyjane.blogspot.com/2009/03/fully-lined-front-zippered-pouch.html
