About a month ago, I got a brand new sewing machine. My machine is a Singer Curvy. I went for a week without touching her. Now, I can't keep my hands off of her. I can't say that I love sewing more than knitting or crochet. I can't say that sewing come easy to me. I can't even say that I can sew a straight line. I can say that sewing has presented a whole new, addictive challenge for me and I am excited by it. Sorry knitting, you just have to share these hands.
I quickly grew tired of making pillows. So, I made a box bag. This bag is the product of at least 5 blogs and 1 YouTube tutorial. Zipper $0.25, Fabric - Less than $2.00, my first zippered project = Priceless!
This precious showed up in the mail a couple of days ago. It will be the prize for the Sacred Skein Craftalong! Isn't she pretty? Cakewalk Yarns Sprout colorway.
What to sew next? Well, more zippered bags. This bag is a modified version of this free pattern. I made the bag longer and used fat quarters on the inside. I am not completely satisfied with these babies but they will do. I will get better with practice,practice, practice.
