Perhaps you read last week about my trashed (store-bought) Tote bag and the start of my journey to replace it? If you missed it, you can read Part I here!
I’ve been busy this week, learned a lot, and ended up with a great Tote bag – despite the “help” offered to me by My Feline Family Members!
I finished off my lining by measuring and sewing in the corners.
I’ve been participating in #miymarch17 on IG and the prompt for today was “COMMUNITY”. The sewing community is definitely a wonderful place to share knowledge, projects and friendship. Today’s prompt reminded me that I haven’t had the chance to share this with you yet – my visit to the creativfestival, certainly another way to meet your local sewing community. It was my first sewing expo and I certainly hope I can attend another soon.
I signed up for a class with Cindy Scraba of Cindy’s Threadworks and learned quite a few things about bag making. I always wondered what the heck I could put in my bags to make them not so floppy. Now I know!
Here are a couple of many sample bags that Cindy brought with her to discuss.
