If at first you don’t succeed…

Try again!

This is a follow up to the post Misadventures in Bag Making.

There is No Such Thing as Failure, Only Learning E - tymoff

I was not going to give up, zipper foot issues be darned, I re-attempted making the Devon Pouch by  s.o.t.a.k. handmade last night, and made a second one this morning.

This time I kept my dastardly zipper foot tucked away and just used my normal sewing foot.

Here is the first pouch redone with different center fabric:

I was so pleased with it, compared to my first attempt, I gave it its own section in my studio!

Sort of an homage to trying again and not giving up (smile).

This morning I decided to make the second one as my friend Dana had sent me enough supplies to make two:

In the third image above you will see there are trains at the bottom of the pouch. I plan to take this pouch with me when I do one of my “Bucket List” items in the future and take the transcontinental train across Canada (someday when they allow us Americans with cooties back into Canada…).

I am so happy with my two pouches! They are not perfect of course but they are MUCH better than my first attempt!

Oh and thanks to everyone who provided kind comments on the post of my first attempt as well as resources for learning how to use a zipper foot.

  1. Okay, although I really did like the original bag, I think your “remixes” are even better! Nice one, and well done for having another bash at it! Let’s hope you get to take them on a Canadian adventure very soon 😊

  2. Bravo, Tierney! These two new bags are so cute. The prints and design make me smile, and those zipper seams are so smooooth. I like the idea of linking a project to a travel plan (good thinking!). If ever you do that trip, and I’m in Canada, we must cross paths! 🇨🇦😊

  3. Really cute purses. I drug out my UFO’s the other day and told myself to just get it done. I think once I get started, I will feel better about that mountain of stuff.
