Today's Project 

Today I spent time doing something I enjoy. 


My 25 year old self would have been appalled! Isn’t it funny how things change.

I made this Tote Bag today, mostly from my own ‘pattern’. I used tips from a few online patterns. The straps are too long but I am not in the mood now to shorten them. Maybe tomorrow.

Sewing is a new ‘hobby’ for me. I have attempted a few outfits, mostly for the kids, but I actually enjoy making bags, aprons, etc more than clothing.

Anyway, let me know what you think.

    Cute! ?
    My kid is such a girl, and likes all this… which means I may be forced to learn how to sew and stuff. Last time I sewed or knitted anything was in primary school for needlework. ?

      Me too! I did 1 year of sewing when I was 14. Hated it. But when my girls demanded specific Halloween costumes last year I knew I needed to try dust off the cobwebs. Weird thing is I’m enjoying it so much.

    It looks great! I need to get back into sewing. Don’t think my machine has been used in 2yrs now ?

I'd love to know what you think. Let me know in the comments below.
