Like my new bag? I MADE IT! I know - I am a little shocked myself. I have had my sewing machine set up for weeks and have avoided making any eye contact with it. Sewing is one of those things I know I should do, and know how to do, but I figured there would be a lot of work involved in re-learning, so I put it off. Well the other night I saw this tutorial to make a reversible bag, and thought I would take it on. (Wine may have been involved.)
Oh yeah - did you catch that? - it reversible!
I am ridiculously proud of myself. Only at the end did I discover that I had the machine threaded wrong, which would explain the 50 times the thread broke or came out of the needle. But sometimes being a stubborn Taurus comes in handy. :) Anyway, it is a great bag, and a great tutorial, and as long as you aren't sewing challenged like moi it would be a fast and easy project! It is here, and can also be found on this great list of Mothers Day project ideas.
