Well, that was quick

I didn’t quite expect to meet one of my year goals so quickly but, well, the bag is done.  I stayed up way too late last night finishing it and here it is.

You may notice a slight hesitation in my writing.  Truth be told, I’m not over the moon in love with it.  It’s a little too big and I really should have come up with some kind of fastener to keep the flap closed.  Also, I really ought to have top stitched it with some kind of contrasting thread just to break up the solid black.

However, I think I did meet the criteria of the goal.  I really love the Vader print on the inside and it’s definitely usable (as evidenced by the fact that it’s already full of stuff as you can see).  I will use it.  I just think I also could have done better.

So I guess we can say that goal number one for 2017 is completed.  I’d still like to make a smaller, slightly better constructed bag.  And a piece of apparel.  Probably because it didn’t turn out quite as great as I wanted, I’m not quite as excited about crossing this one off my list, but I think I’ll give it to myself anyway.

And I don’t think the other two goals will be quite as easily accomplished.
