First Sewing Project.
One of the ways I am trying to save money and acquire new skills is learning to sew.
Luckily, I have a friend who offered to lend me a spare sewing machine to see how I would go and if I would like it. (I do)
My first project was an Amy Butler bag. I like Amy's patterns as there is no assumed knowledge. She spells it all out for you step by step. Sure, there were plenty of stuff ups - like ironing the interfacing to the ironing board cover but overall I was pretty pleased with the end result.
It is quite a big bag and I use it when we are going to be out at somebody's place till after dinner and then I will pack all of Rhianna's toiletries and Pj's etc in it.
Other than that it hangs on the back of this chair to remind me that I'm not to old to learn new stuff.
