I find myself thinking about sewing. I find myself thinking about sewing a lot. I have even dreamed about sewing. My sewing thoughts happen at all times of the day, including when I should be paying attention to something else. Mostly I think about future projects, and I visualize how I will go about creating the project, and imagine possibilities, and come up with new ideas. The project I’m working on and thinking about right now is yet another tote bag based on these instructions, but with some variations. Now that I’ve worked with interfacing for the first time, I will use it on this bag to give it more structure and sturdiness. I also plan to add internal pockets, and I’m going to attempt to box the corners to add depth to the bag. I also want to add a cloth divider to the bag so that it has two separate sections. I have an idea how to do this, but I’m not sure if it will work. I spent yesterday evening cutting my fabric and ironing on the fusible interfacing, and tonight I’ll be ready to sew! A post and pictures will follow, of course.
