Lookey Lookey!


Lookey what I made! I'm as proud as a schoolkid with an "A"! My first real sewing project was a success- I made a bag, proving I could follow directions and operate machinery at the same time. I made it with some remnant fabric I picked up; I've scooped up a few remnants since they're cheap and I can practice with them. This one was probably a little lightweight for this bag, but it still worked. And don't look too close- you'll see my lines aren't always straight and I didn't finish the seams on the inside to look pretty... but it will hold stuff, thus qualifying it as a successful bag!
If anyone has any other easy starter projects to share, I'd love to try! :)

I am so glad you are enjoying your new machine and sewing....it is so much fun...especially seeing your finished product. Your bag looks great. other projects i think you could do now are diaper/wipe cases, pillow case dresses...instructions for both are on the internet. Have fun!
