Simplicity 2830 #2
I didn’t get to work on the pattern last night. We stopped by Wal-mart to pick up some plain white thread. I hadn’t gotten more than the red color that I’m going to use for the project, so when the direction calls for me to baste two pieces together before seeming them together, I was caught without a contrasting color. So I figured white would be good since it’s one of those all-purpose colors that I’ll be able to use later. They didn’t have any black though and I was going to pick up a spool of that too.
I’m getting a little discouraged though. The pattern instructions are really vague, and the pictures/diagrams that are included are less than helpful. I’m having issues when it tells me to “press under seam allowance”. What the heck does that mean? I think I’ve decided that I’m going to take a deep breath and just jump in. I’m pretty sure I cut out my fabric wrong to begin with, so I’m glad that it was cheep.
I’ve read a few reviews of the pattern on Pattern Review.com and they all seem to say the say the same thing… the directions suck and that the bag needs a lining… I’m not that advanced yet, so I’ll cross that bridge when I get to it on a different project.
