I haven't sewed for over fifteen years, since junior high. I borrowed my mother's sewing machine a couple months ago. Then I found this cute pattern on the internet. And I was looking for something to do this weekend. So I made this...
I cannot believe how great it turned out and how easy it was (seriously). I only had one snafu when I sewed two pieces together the wrong way. I then had to run to the store for a seem ripper (how arrogant of me not to purchase one when I bought the fabric). I tore the fabric apart carefully and then proceeded to pin it together the wrong way again. Thankfully I noticed that I had done this right before I sewed it incorrectly again.
I'm sending this bag to my sister. If you knew her you would know that this is totally her style. I had "sew" much fun making this (I'm so giddy I'm making bad puns) that I might just make one next weekend too. Although next time I think I am going to skip the buttons and sew ribbon around the top.
Thanks for indulging me in sharing my weekend accomplishment. Now go back to being infertile.
