Aug Friday Night Sew In

I joined Wendy from Sugarlane Designs for the Friday Night Sew In again this month. But I had a short night because we were working on canning during the day, but I did finally make it up to my sewing room in the evening. I turned my attention to making Jeff an overnight bag, similar to the one I made for myself. I had originally planned to make him a quilted one, but then I remembered this wonderful tapestry fabric I bought about 15 years ago. He would like this much better.

I finished making the outer pieces on Friday night and then today, Saturday, I finished assembling them. I still need to make the lining, but it will have to wait because we have some more canning to finish.
This time I had the interfacings the video called for, though with the tapestry fabrics, the seam is still pretty bulky and it's hard to get it to turn and lay flat.

  3. Very thoughtful piecing of the fabric -- looks great. I'd be interested in hearing more about your canning weekend -- what you made, recipes, etc.

    1. Unfortunately, I forgot to take photos of the finished jars before we packed them into the pantry boxes. We pickled 25 pounds of cucumbers and 25 pounds of beets.
