Uh oh.

So, remember before when I made a comment about my enthusiasm for collecting projects without taking stock of how much time it would take to complete them? Yes, well, add that to my other downfall(s) which are either wildly over or underestimating how much talent/patience/experience I'd need to actually complete the project correctly and you'd understand my predicament right now.

I have this great backtack buddy (is that what we're calling them? I don't know) who is super creative and imaginative and interesting, so I wanted to make her a bag that would fit in with her unique characteristics. So, without letting too much out of the bag here, I found a bag that I thought would be perfect for her, ordered the pattern and, Voila! it looks very hard.

Now, I am a smart woman. I've managed to complete a few projects that I originally thought were way over my head, too. However, this would be the crown jewel in my crafting tiara if I were to pull it off. So, please, crafters everywhere, join hands and prey that I don't jack this thing right up.



  1. Heh, welcome to my life. the pattern i bought said 'teen' on the top, so i thought it would be easy. oy, was that wrong. good luck with your bag! mine turned out ok and i learned lots. i'm sure yours will be the same!

  2. Fin,
    So the bag is a bit cheeky, eh? But you got all of the pieces cut out? That is a big accomplishment. I've got a good feeling in the next 5 weeks you'll make it work. I can't wait for the photos.
    I, on the other hand, have only started sniffing about and have yet to sew my partner's bag. The pattern is in the mail.


[2013 update: You can't comment as an anonymous person anymore. Too many douchebags were leaving bullshit SPAM comments and my inbox was getting flooded, but if you're here to comment in a real way like a real person, go to it.]

Look at you commenting, that's fun.

So, here's the thing with commenting, unless you have an email address associated with your own profile, your comment will still post, but I won't have an email address with which to reply to you personally.

Sucks, right?

Anyway, to remedy this, I usually come back to my posts and post replies in the comment field with you.

But, if you ever want to email me directly to talk about pumpkins or shoes or what it's like to spend a good part of your day Swiffering - shoot me an email to finnyknitsATgmailDOTcom.
