The fab Nordika fabrics were on top so I decided to work on the 241 tote first. I prepared the side pockets using some grey thread to match. Then I wanted to see how big actually the whole thing is so I moved to the lining. I need to change the thread to add the pocket to the front and sometimes I pick up another project instead.
So I started the color wheel.
In my sketch the line goes all across the wedge but for reason unknown I didn't do it that way on my template. I was probably afraid it'll be too skinny or I don't really know what was I thinking. I just didn't look at that sketch and went to work on it. I also did not realize on the mirror effect and I had to sew it together differently than my original plan. Those are the things you do when you not following any instructions. I currently have 4 pieces and I'm ready to add the background fabric. As usual I'm really unsure about the outcome. One minute I like it and hate the very next one so we'll see how that continues.
In between those wedges I put together two mini log cabins. I messed up the fabric placement I was originally planning. What the hell is wrong with me? Never mind.
Update: that color wheel started an idea of some color play. I cut the strips right away as those fabrics were on my table anyway and here is how it ended up.
That's it. Totally out of balance since I haven't touch the old projects. Let's hope for some bright future, lol.
