This weekend we had our wonderful meeting of the Bee Germany in Berlin (How practical, just around the corner from my house). But anyway it was like a short holiday either, as we spend most of the time inside our nice appartement, which Aylin rented for the bees to sleep, eat and sew in. It was a blast meeting most of the nice ladies from the bee and next meetings are already in planning.
I also got some sewing done. I finished two bee blocks first, so that I would have a relaxed mind for the project to come. And hell´ya need a relaxed mind. I chose to make the paparazzi bag by Sara from sew sweetness.
It has a gazillion pattern pieces from fabric, interfaces and foam. And the sewing took ages.
I finished it today and have to add that I am quite inpatience and so don´t worry to much if you want to make one. It is a lot of fun aswell.
The funny thing about the process or lets more say the material,is that I could get a special stuff which should be inside. I was in a hurry and tried to find a replacement. So I went to the hardware store and finally I found something, what I thought could be used. It replaces the "By Annie soft and Stable" and is like a blanket with a rubber side which is normally used to put under a tablecloth. I worked awesome! Now the bag has this stable finish what I absolutely love!
The result is really rewarding. I like my paparazzi bag so much already allthough it hasn´t seen the camera yet. She (the camera) is not here at the moment, but tomorrow I will put her in her new home.
Besides the sewing of many projects (see some posts about it here, here and here) there was of course a lot of fun talking, eating and a tiny bit of drinking, too.
I had a fun weekend thanks ladies! I hope yours was also nice. And your week will be,too.
