Sewing: My Weekender Bag is Finished!

My Weekender Bag is almost finished, just needing a few hand stitches on the inside at this point.

I still believe the binder clips are a necessity when doing those final seams, as there is no way a pin will hold together all those layers.

I only broke one needle...and that was due to my own stupidity, trying to sew through a pin.

And I definitely need to replace my pin supply at this point; after four Weekender bags, most of them are bent out of shape.

Was it worth it?  Absolutely, positively sure was...and I'd do it again if need be.  It's my bag...and there is no other one in the world like it.

But the best parts about it....RalphieParker fits snuggly in the side pocket, and it's Edgar approved!

It is an awesome bag. And there's nothing more I can say if it's Edgar approved! Love the bag and Edgar!
