We learned how to wind the bobbin, thread the machine, and how to sew a straight-ish hem. After some other exercises, the instructor gave us some project options. Because I am a purse-aholic, I chose to make a tote bag.
Here it is!
On the front (although it's hard to see) I attached a double pocket. I used what I refer to as webbing for the straps.
I was so proud of myself. You should have seen me when I came home. I was giddy!
I wanted to spice up my bag, so I sewed a little flower and added a pretty button.
I am amazed at how simple it was (once I got the thread and fabric and peddle and fingers all working together). I know that it's not the most impressive thing in the world, but I sure am happy with it.
