Sew Demented - I always assumed she chose her name to be funny, a little self-depreciating humor.
But now, after making her famous bag, I realize it is us - we are the ones demented.
We put 4 zippers in one project.
We wrapped that side panel around three different things, and then we defied the laws of nature, physics and fabric to attach it to the base without distorting the inside pockets.
And like just about everyone else who has made one, I am now planning my next one. Yes, we are the ones demented. We're on our way to the padded rooms, you realize that don't you?
And the scary thing, they don't allow rotary cutters in those padded rooms. I think they're afraid we'll cut the padding off and use it in a project.
I'm sure you figured out by now that this is for my friend, Mandy, who recently graduated nursing school. The fabric is Calling all Nurses by Windham fabrics. My favorite is this text fabric:
Full of puns, but I love it anyway. I bought extra of this and I'm thinking of making something for my sister-in-law as well.
I also love the hats, mostly for the pretty blue background:
I really didn't like the band-aids - I'm not even sure why I bought them, but I did, so I relegated them to the inside of the pockets.
I think the next one will be easier. I think. If not, I will gladly surrender my rotary cutter to the men in the white coats.
