I am sooooo frustrated!
I was told it was a fab pattern and easy to follow. So what is wrong with me? Why do some patterns stump the h*** out of me? I NEED diagrams. I don't need words - words just confuse me. I need pictures. Lots of pictures. And some more diagrams. And another picture for good measure! And this pattern looked like it had lots of pictures - just not enough for me. I am special - did you know that!? Very special. So special I need more pictures and diagrams than the average person. I am a visual learner - that is how I understand things. Tonight, I did not understand things. Obviously not enough pictures!
You know, I bought this pattern at the very beginning of June. A couple of weeks later I picked my fabric and printed and taped the pattern pieces together and pinned it all to the fabric. Exciting stuff but I hesitated cutting it - I didn't want to mess it up [hahaha too funny!]. I walked away and left it for a few weeks - until tonight.
Tonight I was feeling in the mood to FINALLY get it done and I cut, cut again and poop - something went wrong. Not enough fabric to cut 2 of each of C and D. What!!?? So I contacted the pattern writer and she told me I needed 2 of C and none of D for the exterior. Poop again! This means I wasted a whole piece of fabric on D when it should have been a second C. Are you confused yet!? I am!!
[cue tears and rain dance]
So, I am sitting here all frustrated that a sewing pattern got the better of me tonight and that I wasted my yummy Cosmo Cricket Black with Cream dots which means I can't finish this darn bag tonight and enter it into Purse Palooza for tomorrow's deadline. Poop. Yes I can re-use the fabric in something else but if I want to continue making THIS bag in THAT fabric I will need to drive out and buy some more and that won't happen tomorrow or the next day or the next day. Poop. Looks like this bag is on hold AGAIN!
Another WiP added to my list.
