Almost almost!

Introducing...the Sophia Bag! Almost finished. I haven't done the lining. I'll get that from the store tomorrow. I'm waiting for the sleeve trim to come in for my costume so I put it aside and started this project again. This fabric is my test fabric. I needed to see if I liked the bag and was OK with sewing it before I used my Japanese fabric.I almost got the pattern to match on the top!
It's a little puffy where the piping is. I think the fabric/seams need to "calm down" a little and settle. Maybe more ironing..
I figured out how to get a double zipper without buying one. I used the heavy duty make-a-zipper stuff we have and put two zipper pulls on it. I used timtex for the sides and bottom (it only calls for the bottom to have timtex) after reading several reviews and seeing other's on FLICKR. They looked droopy and lumpy. I also didn't put piping around the bottom because of reviews. I think it's fine so far without.

Goodness, is there anything you can't do? It looks amazing! But then, I would be flabbergasted if you made something that wasn't amazing. :)

I love the bag, very nice as always. One of the things I sent Ava reminded me of Japanese fabric, but if it turns out to be really ugly, sorry. It's been awhile since I have seen your japanese fabrics.
