I can't remember the last time I used a sewing machine so it was all very new to me. I bought lots of books, did lots of research on tools and equipment that I would need, spent a lot of money on eBay buying fabrics, interfacing, rotary cutters, cutting mats, pinking shears, bias binding (which I have yet to figure out how to use!)...etc. Phew. And then finally it was time to sit down with the machine!
And look what I managed to make! Little zipped purses - perfect as a make-up bag, pencil case or in my example, as a bag for storing all my ribbons!
This one is my favourite. I love the ribbon attached to it.
I am really enjoying making these and now can't seem to stop! Luckily Christmas is just round the corner so I have a great excuse to make loads as gifts!
What should I try and make next? I'm thinking cushions might be my next project...
