Then the other day she came and we made Snappy Bags together. This time she made all of it herself (except one line of stitching) since I kind of took over last time.
She loved her Snappy Bag, and I learned to sew with a metal measuring tape!
The fun thing about these is that the top just snaps back together after it's been opened and filled. and it holds all your little lipsticks, kleenex, candies, or whatever. Snap!

My thought is, after all the time and trouble it takes to make your beautiful fabric or crocheted slippers, you want them to last as long as possible. Right?
That means you end up with some super comfy slippers when you're done !

We changed the height of the bottom portion of the bag so that it would be more noticeable. Because it's a black fabric, this gave the illusion that the bag is skinnier than it truly is, which we didn't think about at the time, but which doesn't take away from it at all. It's kind of cute.

When you consider all that, I guess I can understand why things are moving slower than I'd like. I am still smiling though, and I've been able to play with some digitals and do some posting in my "foot raising" times.
