We'll call this one "I survived the infamous step #11 on one of the Weekender Bags edition!"
hahaha! Anyway -
Finished - Turkey Table Topper!
Weekender bags - as you can see above I got the Princess's bag through that horrifying step #11. It was slow and believe it or not I was sweating at the end. Literally. It kind of felt like a wrestling match. But it went well (I think. I still haven't inspected it yet.) The other two bags are through step #10 and anxiously awaiting #11.
I am so glad that I did all three bags together. If I waited to make mine (as I had originally planned), I probably wouldn't have ever done it. Not that is pattern is all that bad, but it does leave a bit of a bitter memory... And then I wouldn't have cut into this gorgeous material!
Pretty, right? I just wish the scale was a little smaller. Anyway, here is where the three bags are sitting right now.
Almost done. I was trying to keep them simple, but as usual I ended up having to figure out some random problem. This time? I used felt for the feathers and they kept flopping over in a very uncute way. Interfacing didn't work. Even Peltex didn't work. So, I wondered around a hardware/craft store until some inspiration hit - foam board!!
Worked like a charm. Of course, that took out a lot of sewing in favor of hot glue! lol!!
All the pieces are cut out! I forgot to take a picture, though, but I think it's going to be really cute!
