My First Post
Well, this is my first post on my new blog. I have been reading a lot of blogs for a while and participating in Fat Quarter Swaps and Sewing Bees but felt so left out that I didn't have a blog to show my work on so I started this blog. I hope you all enjoy it and I am not too boring.
I thought I would start with a bag I just made recently. I didn't have a pattern. I just made the simple tote and them changed it a bit by pleating the fabric. I wish I had a pleater. By hand is torture! It involves a lot of pins and tape. I melted some of my tape forgetting it was there when I ironed it. Oops. I also made the straps a little wider at the bottom and thinner on the top for some excitement. I got the flower fabric at Joann's and the red is a fine corderoy that I fell in love with. It was supposed to be a dress for my daughter but you know how that goes. It was also used in a baby quilt I made. It is so soft. I love it. So much for the dress!
