this past weekend we had our first modern sewing group organized by shannon of luvinthemommyhood, and hosted by the satin moon quilt shop... it was a great set up!! ...and i had sooooo much fun! so this is my first real project i'd say. i've done a quilt that was tied and sewn inside out, and then flipped right side out on the last edge.. but i really don't know much about sewing. yet, i do own anna maria horner fabric. swoon.!
all i have are fat quarters, so i had to use two different fabrics for one side of the bag, but i like the effect!
i used the tutorial for the reversible bag from here. the jean material i totally just got from an old pair of pants from the hubs ;) don't worry... i checked.. he was done with them.
at the beginning of the meetup, i was definitely doe-eyed. i seriously felt overwhelmed, but i'm so glad i didn't decide to just nip into a corner and take out my knitting. i'm proud of myself!
and i love the bag. i will use it lots.
i was soooo frustrated when my machine broke down, but fortunately the super friendly folks at the cloth castle are lending me a machine while i wait for a dr's report on my machine.... so yay for a finished project!
it's perfect for summer, and fall... and i'll totally use it a lot.
you likey? did you notice that i managed to put in my label? (i don't mean the business card in the background... i actually sewed my label into the side of the bag! weeee!)
the bag is far from perfect, but i'm really happy with it.
are you a sewer? what was your first project? were you as terrified as i was? soo glad i stuck it through! now i'm more excited to try new sewing projects!
