Practice...

I love to learn new things, I especially love to practice, the better I get the more rewarding. I posted last week about how I don't know how to sew, I just keep doing it. When I was trying to stay awake as long as possible so I could actually sleep last night (which was a flop) I got tired of cleaning and decided to practice sewing. While I was cleaning I found some cloth placemats that don't match my kitchen and I though they might make a nice bag. It could definitely be better but it could be a lot worse.


This is what I made. It's just a carrying bag, I could probably use it as a purse as well. I like it though, it's different. It's actually a pretty good size like a regular reusable tote bag only not as wide.

This is the side of it. The straps definitely need sewn down better. It was pretty good practice.

What do you think?!

I think you did a GREAT job! If you are anything like me, it takes making something a couple of times to get all the little tweaks figured out. The product can only get better from here on out!

I found you through "Buzz on by Thursday". I am now following you. Stop on by my blog sometime at
