Moon Bag: April OMG Finish

When I listed the Moon Bag as my April One Monthly Goal at the beginning of April, I thought it was an easy peasy goal to accomplish.  I was wrong.  You see, I had not sewn many bags in the past and the bags that I had sewn were less elaborate.  This time I had to sew the bag following more elaborate instructions.  The instructions said to use heavyweight interfacing.  I was not sure what sort of interfacing is considered ‘heavyweight’.  So I used a stiff interfacing that is used for sewing collars of shirts.  Oh my, I regretted that.  Due to the stiffness, it was very difficult to manoeuvre the bag through the sewing machine especially when I had to sew curves.  However the great thing about the stiff interfacing is that it gave the bag a very nice structure.  I supposed if I had used a softer interfacing, the bag might end up more floppy.  Here is a pic of the finished bag

The pattern gave instructions for 1 outer zipper pocket.

But I decided to sew another outer zipper pocket on the other side of the bag.

I would love to make another of this bag but this time I will definitely use a softer interfacing.
