Have you ever worked on a project that made you feel inept?
Yesterday I tried to make the purportedly simple bag from Sew Pretty Homestyle by Tilda. How hard could this possibly be? Well, it stumps me.
I thought it would be perfect as an Easter “basket” for my sister Connie. Just the right fabrics for the exterior and lining were in my stash. And I was going to use the lining material to make the fabric rose from the book to pin to the bag.
There’s a blog devoted to Tilda projects I found while searching for errata about the book last night. Someone posted a picture of the bag they successfully made but no process notes are provided.
But the bag is a non-event because after trying to make it three times, I have temporarily given up. I can usually figure out instructions but something is wrong—either with the book’s directions or my brain cells fell out while I’ve been ill. Have any of you tried this project and figured out what to do?
The good news is that it is officially Spring Equinox. Happy Spring to all of you!
