Project Bag

Look what I made monday morning with the help of my sewing sensei, the very talented and lovely Lise.

The outer fabric was a christmas gift from my now sister-in-law, a few years ago. At the time, I loved the pattern, but had no use for it as I don't own a sewing machine. It had been sitting in a bin with my yarn stash until monday. I used only a small portion of it to make this bag and will most likely have enough to make either a few more project bags or a handbag similar to the one Lise finished herself a few days ago.

The fabric I used to line the inside of the bag, I picked up last august. I was going to use it as the lining of my wedding dress but realized when I put it up against the pattern, it got lost completely because it was so similar in colour. I think its still useful as a liner. Just for bags now instead of dresses.

what a great project bag!! I only have a couple of fabric ones, and then otherwise use the big ziplock bags, but the fabric ones are the best.

Your a quick study, my friend. Come and make more any time.

Thanks Julie! I love it to bits.

Hey Sensei-I will be over soon again, and that's a promise.
