In Lust…Again!

Standard

Hotpatterns has done it to me once again.  I am in lust with this jacket pattern.  Of course, me being me, if/when I get the pattern, I will probably be sewing it up in the middle of summer.  In Cactusville.  When the temperatures are 110+.

I still really like it.

I realized during the not-long-past holidays that I wanted something a bit warmer than my jeans jacket, but fancier than the usual fleece to wear while running errands and going out and about.  Not tailored, but stylish.

I think this fits the bill quite nicely.  It’s edgy, but not so outré that it would go out of style before I get it sewn.  The seaming provides lots of possibilities, both in terms of fit and fabric.  Fabric combinations – maybe a tapestry and faux leather?  The zips could be colored or rhinestone.  Oh my!  The brain whirls.  Inspiration Abounds!

Having just returned from Tucson Gem Show, toting around loot for days, I can well attest to the need of a good sturdy satchel.  Ta Da!

Interior pockets, with and without zips.  A nice sturdy handle.  A special place for your cell phone (though I probably wouldn’t hear mine inside the bag).

Trudy has even provided YouTube video on how to construct this lovely.  You can find the lining here and the satchel here

Hmm, this post is sounding a bit like an advertisement for Hotpatterns, and that is not the case.  I mean it more as a source of inspiration, which I have been lacking of late.  Now the creative juices are flowing, and ideas are abounding.

It’s a nice feeling.
