But, have you ever finished a project and been....well....ambivilant about it? Up until now I have loved almost every sewing project I have started....I loved the Birdie Sling, the Frenchy Shoulder Bag, the Frenchy Hand Bag, and the Sling Bag...and I have been happy with my choice of fabric almost of the time too. But these 3 Bags are the first time I have actually been ambivilant about finishing a project.
Take this purple one for example. I loved this print on the bolt on the shelf in the store. But now? I think she is pretty, but I don't love her. And I wished I would've used a dark purple thread for the decorative zig zag stitching down the side so it would've been more distinctive. But I didn't. And now she is just pretty, not anything special.
And this one. I LOVED this print on the shelf too. I am a Kansas girl at heart, and while the print is actually of Black Eyed Susans, which we do have a lot of in Kansas, it really reminded me of sunflowers, which remind me of home. So I couldn't wait to use it, even though the print wasn't exactly my style. And I like the bag. I just don't love it like I love some of my others. She also is pretty enough though.
And this one. She is nice enough too. But I do not love her. Boy, does that sound sad or what? Poor little bag. Now I feel sorry for her.
So, there you have it. My 3 ambivilant Sling Bags. Does this happen to everyone? I am actually feeling kind of depressed now.
Good thing I think I have just the right fabric to turn my mood around! I found these in the clearance bin at my local quilt shop over my lunch break...what should I do with them?!
