Ships that pass in the night

Kim or Matt related , Quilting & sewing June 20th, 2013

That’s what Matt and I have been lately; I’ve been sleeping more than I’ve been awake, so in spite of my being on vacation, we haven’t had much quality time. And all the napping I’ve done recently finally caught up with me — I couldn’t sleep last night. (To be fair to me, I think at least some of the “napping” has been sleeping off a cold. Anyway, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.)

At any rate, I gave up trying to sleep around 1:30 last night and headed into my sewing room, armed with my laptop (for Stargate reruns) and my phone (for a sewing tutorial).

By the time a very confused looking Matt poked his head into the sewing room at 4:45, I had this:

pink side


Somehow, thorough the genius of the fabric designer, it manages to have completely different colors on the opposite side, and still look completely fabulous.

green side


Aaaand. . . drum roll, please! The interior is waterproof.


(Realistically, it’s probably water resistant, but at any rate, it’s laminated cotton, so I’m thinking water won’t be much of a problem.)

I bought the laminated fabric originally with the intention of making a pouch to hold my swimsuit — it’s water fitness season! — and I still think it’s a great idea, and I love, love, love this pouch — but. . . it’s too small. ¬†And I’m just a weeny bit short of the fabric I’d need to make a bigger one, (and of course the outer fabric is out of print) so I have some thinking to do before I try this again.

But in the meantime, I’ve got this cute little bag!
