Rip As You Go?

Rip As You Go?

Some people like to have  knitting, crochet, or small piecing [hexies] projects handy, so when they find themselves in a situation that requires waiting, they have something productive to do. You’ve seen them in waiting rooms, mall benches, dentist offices, and the like. You may have been one of those people a time or two.

I have a couple of “Quilt As You Go” books, and they suggest that people carry around things to quilt.

I haven’t done any of those things yet, but when I had to have  my hair done last week,  I decided to bring something with me  that I don’t like to do.

A while ago, I found a wood lazy susan for $3 at a thrift shop. Of course I hunted down  a pink cutting mat to match Mustangs case tote, and had the mat cut to fit.  Them I made an awesome bag for it!

but it turns out , I don’t like the flimsy zipper, so I put the bag aside waiting for a better idea. Later I found one I liked, then promptly abandoned it. This bag has sat waiting for it’s proper zipper for way too long, so I packed it up with a seam ripper.

Yep, I may have just invented “Rip As You Go”

Any tears shed could be blamed on the coloring [I mean, ya know from other peoples hair, not mine] solution.

Update: I finished the bag, and it only took a year! Once I ripped out the side piece [or ring], I didn’t bother ripping out the zipper. It was easier to just make another side piece and put the new zipper in that.

Finished! Circle Bag for Rotating mat
