It Didn’t Work Out

September 14, 2008
Oh, darn…it didn’t work out as I thought it would…! Sad  It was a good idea in theory, but in practice…well…!
I finished the satin bag, made four eyelets…hand stitched…and threaded the ribbon through…then stitched the bag to the rigid base, with side bits…and it looked all wrong…!!  For a start, the top of the bag is too wide, when the drawstring is pulled, so it gapes a bit…which is not the look I had in mind. Sad
So, what do I do now…?  I shall unpick the bag from the base, then sit and stare at it for a bit until I come up with another ‘good idea’…!! Sad  Anyway, Robert took some pictures of it…when I get them I shall post a couple…see what you think…?!!
Oh, well…back to the drawing board…!!!

    Don\’t leave it completely. Have another go in a couple of weeks. If you can figure it out you\’ll feel on top of the world again and quite right too! Giving it a few weeks break will help you to get over not getting it the way you wanted the first time but still be reasonably fresh to get it the second time. You\’ll fix it. I have faith in you. xx
