I Made A Bag!

For those of you making fun of my oilcloth and/or sewing skills - suck it! I made a bag and, though it may be less than modest to say, I love it!

Things I learned:
- Wouldn't hurt to add interfacing for a little more structure
- Need to come up with a border solution I'm happy with to make the edge look tidy but not make the bag look lunch-baggy/juvenile
- Need to man-up and commit when pressing the sewing machine pedal so my stitches are neater (don't look too close - it ain't pretty)
- Don't forget velcro closure (doh!)
- I need to get more oilcloth!

  1. Well, from the picture I see nothing wrong with the stitches, but what the hell do I know. I love the fabric and the "squared" shape of the bag. Make more!

  2. Yes, ma'am!

    Seriously, giiiiiirrrrll, you don't even KNOW how excited I am to make more of these! I'm really happy with the way it turned out and I'm SO happy I can finally put my oilcloth to use.

  3. Ooooo! Such happy colors! Love it! :)
