The oilcloth, it seems, was also reminding me that even if my stuff leaked this time, it was pretty much spill proof and that damage would be contained to a smaller area.
I made a bigger boxy bag, and then I remembered the brush catastrophe, so I threw all my wet beauty wares in the box bag, and then made a smaller flat bottom bag for brushes and dry goods. Then, since I still had a little scrap left from my first cut (too small to save, to big to throw out!) I stitched up an even smaller zip pouch for my contacts and eye drops. I really planned on mitering the corners, but it was getting awfully late and...well...oilcloth is hard to turn.
So that's that. I was so proud of my new set that I had to take a second to remind myself that I'm only going to be gone for three days. It's not even just the sewing that has me in a feverish rush to overpack, because I've also got enough clothes set aside to last me at least a week.
I think it's safe to say it's been waaaay too long since I've gone anywhere fun. It's also safe to say that I just remembered I haven't packed any shoes, so I'll be up a little while longer tonight.
