So it was Friday night, and rather than going out, having a long soak in the bath, watching a film, or doing any of those ‘normal’ things a 22 year old should be doing, I spent Friday night with my new sewing machine. And I’m not even slightly embarrassed to say it, I had a great night!
I’d been meaning to have a good plan of attack to introduce myself properly to ‘The Machine’. After my first failed attempt of making a purse ended up looking like a pencil case, a badly made one at that. But hey, I’m still pretty new to sewing, so a good pattern and tutorial to follow was in order. Something I should have just done in the first place.
I found THIS on Pinterest, and its good! Very informative with plenty of pictures, easy to follow too so perfect for a newb like myself. And theres a PDF, YAY! 🙂
And here’s the finished product!
I’m quite impressed. Maybe not so impressed with the fabric choices, but my fabric stash isn’t the best (Is this the perfect excuse to buy more?!). I do like the randomness of the different fabric patterns and colours, but I’m not sure about how they all go together? I feel some stash building and a second attempt coming very soon!
