We didn't accomplish as much this weekend as we had hoped, but we did get a lot done.
We went to both farmers markets, Aaron finally dismantled the last of the greenhouse (now we can take all the aluminum to the recycling center), and I got some sewing time...
I've been wanting to make myself a satchel for quite a while. And I'm completely convinced that had I had a satchel last summer, I wouldn't have had the stupid fucking foot experience.
So this weekend I made myself a satchel. The body and (extra super-duper long over-my-shoulder) handle are linen, with cotton accent.
The inside is lined with a 30's print (big surprise, I'm sure) and pockets (for my wallet and cell phones) matching the outside accent. The linen is lined with some interfacing to give it a little more substance, but keeping the softness and floppability. The bottom has a removable fabric-covered cardboard piece to keep the shape.
I wanted something I could easily throw over my shoulder, so I have both hands free at all times. It's big enough to stow a couple of diapers and wipes as well as two sippy cups and a bottle water.
Because, you know, I have to have my priorities straight.
So, that's what I did this weekend: spent an ass-load of time making myself something for once.
(And this project brought a long a huge discussion of making stuff and selling it and telling Aaron about etsy and hyperventilating into paper bags because who the fuck would buy something I made?!)
