New Bag and Update

This is my new summer bag, can I just say I have a new appreciation for purse/bag seamstresses. This stuff's not and I do repeat not a piece of cake. Of course it would help if I knew what the heck I was doing but, live a learn. This bit here, was annoying I bought the hardware almost a year ago, you know I went into Joann's and they were like 60% off and I thought whoa, that's a great deal you never know when the bag making mood will strike. but don't let those little doughnut shaped things fool you, the screws on that are tiiiiiiinyyyyyyy.
This is my interior fabric "fun, sun and seashells", it's got generous pockets for sunglasses, cell phone and of course a set of knitting needles and yarn, should I be stuck some place in need of entertaining myself of a few hours.

What's that, did you hear that?! It was collective sigh of relief, Coach, Burberry and Kate Spade can breathe easy this is not going to be a new summer line, just one of a kind. I couldn't possible torture myself into make another just like it. LOL. But I do have another one I'm working on with jean material and some hand woven, yeah I was feeling masochistic this weekend and kept making bags. I plan to finish it tonight and maybe have some pics of it tomorrow and then the sewing machine is getting put away for another 6 mths or until I need to hem something.
On another more relaxing note, I've been weaving on my P2P project and I'm really loving the results. I ordered some new "clean" roving to start spinning from an Etsy shop owner. A huge thank you to all of you that had only kinds words and thoughts for me, I appreciate the support.
I'll take some pics of the alpaca stuff I got and the new roving I will receive so that you can see what I was dealing with and the difference.

The purse is awesome!!! Like child bearing-you will forget how painful it is when you have the pleasure of using it!! The strap weaving is cool.

Yay for clean roving! Can't wait to see your spinning now.

That bag is so pretty. It sure doesn't look like you had troubles making it, it's perfect!
Have fun with the new clean fiber!
