But I had already made 3 small bags for each of the planned sets so I made a little loop for the middle bags. Now there is the option of putting that small bag on in a variety of ways or leaving it off all together if it just doesn't work out.
You know what happens when you get really busy? You may start to forget things. I keep a lot of lists and set myself electronic reminders, but not everything goes on the lists. Like, 'write a blog post' has never been on any list. This is just something I do. I am usually pretty good about it. But I had nothing written last night (forgot) so I am actually sitting here writing a post before school. Probably not the first time.
Anyway, yesterday I talked about saddlebags and how I don't really like making them and how I was going to try really hard to get the ironing done on them so I could keep going. Well, pretty much right after I finished that post I talked myself into it. For anyone that is confused about the timeline, the saddlebag post was written several days ago. The ironing was done the same day (Sunday I think). But now I am sitting here writing Wednesday's post on Wednesday. What is the world coming to?
Monday I did something I have not done in a while. I worked on doll stuff in the car while I was doing the laundry. I got all of the lining pieces for the bags cut out before Travis got home from school and I was ready to work. And it was cool enough to sit in the car and get some things done.
After the laundry was folded and put away I kept on going with the saddlebags. I figured out that the 3 small bags that were planned for the pommel bags were not going to work out. There was no good way to attach the middle bag so they actually worked.
These sets are still not done, I need to make all the stuff that goes in them, but a lot of progress has been made. They are technically ready to go as-is other than I really do want to make the stuff to go with the sets. But I officially will now have saddlebags at my live sale. Not many of them, but some.
As a reminder, my live sale will be August 15th at 2:00 pm Eastern on my studio Facebook page.
