Insert Clever Title Here
But I did get a chance to do some sewing with Toni.
I wanted to try out Toni's zipper foot and challenge her a bit with a type of fabric that used to give The Beast fits (but let's be honest, EVERY fabric gave The Beast fits!).
Inspired by this tutorial, some scrap oilcloth I had in my stash, and some zippers I ordered from Etsy in a rainbow of colors, I made a couple of bags.
Holy beer battered cat fritters, how incredible is my machine?!
Toni has a wonderful zipper foot that was a breeze to snap in and out. And she sewed through the oil cloth like it was butter!
Not sure what this weird plant was growing on the chain link fence at the park. Everything else is brown and dead because it's February in New Jersey. It made for a great photo shoot background though.
They're not like the ones in the tutorial, they're smaller as I only had 7" zippers. (And I didn't follow the tutorial 100%).
And I felt they needed some jazzy zipper pulls.
They're not lined or anything fancy...
But you can toss some odds and ends in there and they'll serve their purpose.
I'm going to keep the white one and the black and pink one I believe is going to go into the Christmas present shoebox.
Is that wrong to be making Christmas presents in February? Ha ha!
