Sewing up pouches and purses, at last!
Where is this month going?
Between potty training my boys, keeping the house in order and those everyday things that eat into your time, I’ve had precious little time to do anything even remotely crafty.
Last week I finally got a chance to sit down and do some sewing.
My poor neglected sewing machine (Doris) let it be known she wasn’t happy being abandoned, and puckered, bunched and generally messed about for awhile.
Eventually I managed to calm her down and stitched up these little cuties.
My hubby ordered this fabric for me, I love it, so fun! I made these using the same process here, I just amened the sizes.
I added some beads and ribbon to the zipper, makes a nice addition I think.
Around Christmas I purchased some Keyka Lou patterns and made some purses.
With all this drab and dreary weather we are having I decided to use some fun bright colours.
Can you tell I like my polka dots?!
As someone who hasn’t been sewing for a long time, I found these patterns / instructions easy to follow. Lucky for me Michelle includes some handy tips to make things easier, all of which I will be using on other sewing projects.
I’m hoping to get some more sewing done this weekend, I’ve already cut my fabric and applied interfacing, now all I need to do is sew it all together!
