Firefly Tote Sew-Along Week 2

It may not look like much, but I completed week two's assignment in the Firefly Sew-Along, and the end is in sight! Where week one had us selecting and cutting our fabrics and sewing together the front pocket; in week two, we made the bag's exterior and drawstring closure. Look at those cool leather handles! Now to just finish it up....

The dry oilskin exterior fabric has been a pleasure to work with. I'm still not sure if it's ok to use pins with it, so I've been sticking with wonder clips, which has worked just fine. If you aren't familiar with dry oilskin, here's a brief blurb about the Merchant & Mills product on a verb for keeping warm.

  1. The dry oilskin looks like it is sewing well from what I can tell, is it pretty thick?
