being sick blows

Today is my 7th day of being sick and, well, I'm sick of it.  I'm feeling well enough to blog (always a good sign) and well enough to clean although I wish I could have 3 more sick days. Mom's don't get any sick days so I'm thankful for what I got, I guess.  When I look around the house, though, I kind of want to cry.  I think we could be featured on Hoarders.  It's so bad. 

I really wanted to be sewing this past week, dang it.  I have a lot of things I'd like to do.  But my brain was replaced by a brick and brick brain isn't really something I work well with.  However, I could crochet.  Apparently I could do it in my sleep because I don't remember doing a whole lot of it.  I did enough to finish a purse, though.

I got this pattern from  It's an awesome bag.  I couldn't get a picture of it that really showed how awesome it is.  You'll just have to take my word for it. 

Meh, I gotta go clean this place up.  It's out of control.

Patchwork Zipper Bag

I was planning on making another messenger bag with the patchwork but I decided I should try something smaller since I had/have no idea what I'm doing with the patches.  I'm so glad I went with a smaller bag.

Pro:  It's adorable
Con: It was a massive pain in the ass

Of course it would be a lot easier if I knew wtf I'm doing, but I don't.  The zipper really gave me hell, more so than the last zipper bag I made.  I think it's because of the felt.  I think I should rename this blog "Seam Ripper"  because the majority of the time I'm just ripping out seams and doing it over again x 10

Overall I'm really happy with the way this came out.  I'm definitely going to give the messenger bag a go.
