I read the pattern about seven times first, then I enlisted the help of my lovely friend Eve to help me get it cut out. While Eve was helping me I got started on making it and it didnt seem quite so difficult then. While having to reread the pattern and think "what on earth do they mean?" sometimes it was just the different way us Kiwis think to our American friends. Woohoo, got all three zippers in and my changing mat even worked out the way it was supposed too.
Here are lots of photos because I am so rapt that I actually did it. Also, am so impressed with my Janome Horizon 8900 sewing machine. That baby sewed through up to 12-14 layers and never missed a stitch. It was impressive.
Umm...now what did that pattern say to do next?
The finished article. It took some detective work to come up with the swivel hooks and thank goodness I have such a clever hubby.
I always wondered how to make a zippered bag top like this...now I know!
The changing mat has a zipper on each side and opens up with a pocket that can hold a nappy and other neccessities for babies.
On Monday I had fun quilting Rosie's gorgeous panel quilt. I did a freehand swirl pattern all over it and it really did come up nice.
Tyson wondering why this bag will only fit his head and shoulders, lol. While he wasnt looking, Travis jumped on him lol.
Have a great weekend. We have a four day holiday weekend starting today as it is our region's Anniversary Day as well as Labour Weekend. Yippeee.
Blessings to you all
