It only took months...

But, I finally finished the L2 bag!   I purchased it at Bolt right  after reading a review by Hannah on their blog and deciding I had to have it.  This one is for my mom, but I plan on making one for myself later on.

Pattern:  L2 Bag by The Sewing Workshop 
Time:  <20 min. to cut (about 8 of those playing hide and seek with rotary cutter) 4 hours sewing time
Make again?:  Yes!  It's like a fancy tote, but with millions (4) pockets.   One for me, and more as gifts.
Changes:  I did not fold the handles in half and sew like it said because I think it is more comfortable as is.  Also, per Hannah's suggestion, added half a yard extra of webbing.  Any other changes were unintentional since I decided I could do markings in my head ;).  It worked, a little.

Hi =)

I have been "about" to start a blog for years now...  The thing is, since I wanted to write about so many things I thought I would end up with a big mess.  Now I decided it might be a big mess, but it's my big mess.  I want to write for myself and that involves many opinions about many things that I feel strongly about.  I feel it would be dishonest to show only the non-controversial part of myself just so that people can feel comfortable and kumbaya and shit.  Also, with so many Mormon and religious crafty/sewing blogs pushing god at me, I thought there had to be others wanting to read something crafty, opinionated and ungodly.  Someone, anyone...? =)
