I am finished, WOO HOO!
Lining the pieces was a bit of a challenge, the crochet being diamond shaped and the lining a sort of square. It was very important that the lining be strong, it's made from a sturdy woven fabric.
Machine sewing the lining to the strap ensures the piece won't stretch.
I hand sewed the bag together and went over that with machine stitches.
This is me putting the needle on the record, and the record on the bag!
(let's say it again...)
Put the needle on the record, and the record on the bag.
There were moments while making this bag that I just wanted to be done with it already. I put in a lot of thought and work in to it like everything I make, but this bag is special.
This bag is STRONG... it can hold over 15lbs of records!
Here I am rocking the bag. The strap is wide and comfortable.
Whatever your choice in music is, whether you make the music with your mouth or not, it'll all fit in this bag!
