This is not what I had planned

One of my focus project last week was these small bags. I have handquilted the front, back and the bottom parts. When I this morning started to make the zipper parts I discovered I had made the bottom without seam allowance at main fabric. Grrrrrrrrr. Do I make the bottom parts all over again or do I reduce the seam allowance at the zipper parts. But if I do that, the bag will get so small. And if I choose to make the bottom parts over again, do I handquilt them again or do I machinequilt? This is what happens when you do not read the instructions well. And can not blaim that it on that is a japanese pattern, because there is an extra patternsheet with english instructions :)

Have to think about this while stitching on my easter rabbits and watch a movie.

Saying for today:

Never say, "oops."
Always say, "Ah, interesting."

Ergerlig er slike tabber, men litt mindre vesker gjør vel ingenting? Du syr nå fort noen nye, da. Lykke til!

Mistakes happens. I suggest you do a new bottom part, with handquilting. I know it's a lot of work, but knowing you I thing you would be unhappy taking the short cut here.

Joanne said...

Too bad about the mistake. I think Nancy is right though.
The bags look like they will be great, nice size.

Annelies said...

I would do a new bottom part.
The parts look very beautiful.

Hanne said...

I do agree with you making a new bottom part!

Making a new bottom part would be ideal, however, can you not add to the bottom in the "quilt as you go' method? Then just trim it down to the proper size.

Hei May Britt,

Min første kommentar til any
Har fulgt deg lenge,men har nettopp startet med min egen blog, Ikke så lett i starten egentlig,
du er jo ekspert. Og du har virkelig sååå mye fint å vise.
Som jeg skrev, er jeg kjempeglad
for å se ufo-eskene dine. Gleder
meg til å starte på syrommet mitt.

Oh what a shame. The bags look beautiful. I always try to turn my mistakes into "new designs". However, when I can't, I redo them and try to use the mistakes in other projects. Whatever you do, good luck.
