Sew Into Spring!

My First Bag

MaineMan and I have been talking about sewing bags for some time now. Rather than leave all the pressure on him, I decided it was high time I take a lesson. He tried on a few occasions to teach me but there’s something about learning a skill from a significant other that doesn’t quite work. I found myself getting more frustrated with him than the machine, which isn’t healthy for either of us, so off to Lincoln Fabrics I went.

My instructor Rebecca/Becca was a real gem. She said she’s only been sewing for four or five years, but she is a master. Check out her website Hiccup Fashion. Throughout the entire lesson I just kept telling her how amazed I was that I could actually sit down and do this.

I picked out some sunny material and we were off and running. She told me it was addicting and she was right. Now I’m wandering around the house looking for loose/unused items of clothing/material to see what I can make next.

I just texted MaineMan, “What’s my next project?”

It’s raining here in Los Angeles so it’s a perfect SIY day.

Happy Sunday!

    I’ve wanted to get into making bags for a little while now. There are some nice patterns online, but I think I’d rather get a book of patterns to start with. :)

    Love it :-)

    I’ve always wanted to get sewing but it seems to get pushed aside.

    Happy sewing :-)
