At Least Two Things I Suck At
Please understand, there are many things about which I am ignorant. Today, I detail two things I suck at.
My Latest Project Shows Two Things I Suck At
And hopefully, you can help with one of them.
As I worked to finish up the Knitted Cross-Body Bag and the associated pattern, I realized I am really bad at braiding.
This surprised me. I would have thought that being good at other fiber arts would have carried over to braiding. But it turns out it’s a very different skill. The shoulder strap for the Knitted Cross-Body Bag is a four-strand, braided cord. And it requires about 104 inches. The task was one that I really had to force myself to finish. Fortunately, the bag is somewhat “rustic” and the poor braiding seems to accent the bag and not take away from it.
The other thing I’ve sucked at for a while is choosing buttons. The bag requires one button and I have narrowed it down to a few choices.
It’s a little difficult to see through the cellophane, but if you have any thoughts on which button would work best, I’d be glad to hear them.
Clearly, I have almost finished the Knitted Cross-Body Bag.
In addition to sewing on the adjustable shoulder-strap, and adding the button, I will also consider inserting a key ring inside like I did with the first one.
