All Well

Hey Lex what do you think of my cute round bag? Lex – You could carry a little tire in there!

This is the All Well Full Moon Bag, a free pattern from All Well Workshop. I made the the Big Moon size (9″ diameter x 3″ deep), out of some (deep stash) long forgotten weird printed denim.

I actually made kid Lex some pants in the late 90’s/early 00’s with this and the print is still giving me those Lizzy McGuire feels.

Over the years I’ve learned that I don’t really enjoy sewing circles, so I don’t often make things that require them, I’m not sure what it is, but they literally make me anxious while sewing.

Two deep breaths and I whizzed right through. It was actually really easy, pleasant almost, I was already in a pre-sew funk and trying to sew myself out of it, so why not distract myself further with zippers and curves. It works sometimes you know :)

I Divided the front and interior pockets to suit me and my favorite things. Then white knuckle finished all the seams in bubblegum pink bias tape.

Still debating if it needs handles (the pattern comes with handle instructions) and questioning the usability of a round bag. Doesn’t everything just settle at the middle bottom, how can you carry a book, or anything with pointy edges without it looking like your round bag swallowed something square?

It’s soooo fricken cute though and if anything I guess it’s perfect for carrying around little tires and such.

I made a quick little video of the process, I don’t even know how my wordpress site will handle/play it, but it let me upload it …so maybe?!? Anyways, if it’s a mess on here, and you’d like to watch cute videos of boring stuff, you can always find more of mine on my Instagram reels page.

Cute, with a pinch of rage at the end.

I just want you to know, this is being counted as the first sweater of the season.

p.s This is also an average sized sink with a tiny sweater, not a giant sink with an average sized sweater (if you were wondering).

Just a palm sized sweater with a petite corsage on top.

I can get 3 little cardigans from a single 25g ball of fingering weight wool.

There’s a burrow at the base of the hops arbor, it’s where we leave the rubbery radishes.

It’s been extra warm and we have been under an air quality warning for the past few days due to the Canadian wildfires, so keeping indoors with the ac on ..not that I would have been out romping around anyways, we all know how much I love mellow days at home, tucked away in my studio or on my lazy end of the couch. The pandemic is still fucking terrible too, no matter how much we are pushed to think and behave like it isn’t. I could go on and on about the anger, embarrassment, sadness, and frustration I feel for all the misinformation and ignorance whirling around, I just wish people could see it in my still masked vaccinated face. Ugh. Trying to find little bits of happiness, clarity, peace (whatever you want to call that inner calm/relaxed feeling) wherever I can lately, and sometimes that looks like a tiny sweater for a tiny bunny and sometimes it looks like nothing special, just being.
