SEW Hip! Balloon Ride (issue 5) is my penultimate SEW Hip project and it is done…
I mentioned last week…
that the challenge in this project was not in the making of the purse
but in creating the purse template.
I was half right.
I think I also mentioned last week that I am averse to reading instructions.
I was totally right.
I didn't read a single instruction for the SEW Hip! Balloon Ride Purse…
which is why I was only half right
about where the challenge in this project lay.
As you can probably guess…
I decided that I would make my purse template by following the diagrams only.
A great idea perhaps if you have made a template before.
Before you think it was a massive train wreck
I just miscalculated the top section of
the purse (where it sits under purse frame)
only by a few millimeters!
After a bit of stretching, addition of 'Divine Twine' and some ingenious glueing…
I managed to get the purse frame on
(minus huge gap on one side).
I made my very own SEW Hip! Balloon Ride
template thingy & purse.
