Finally I felt like doing something other then just living. I sewed today. I started out with a pouch and then decided to make a matching tote. I added a little bit of decorative stitching and lined both bags. Want to see?

There’s a hard cardboard bottom that I covered with the outside fabric and the pocket on the outside is a double one. The pockets and handles are made from the inside material.

I added the detail stitching to reinforce the parts and to add just a touch of pretty. The pouch is just that a zipper pouch and it’s lined with the same fabric as the tote.


And here’s the two of them together. I am going to be selling these in August at our Heritage Days craft sale.

Now my machine is going to stay out for a few days. I have a couple more pouches and maybe a tote I’d like to do. We’ll see how the time goes. Joss today painted while I sewed and then we danced and the she watched Dora. It’s a rainy day here so the perfect day to try and get back into me.

Take care my friends and have a blessed afternoon.

I can't sew. I can kinda sew, but it's more like "I can kinda survive after a plane crash in the desert..."

Nice job! I like the pretty stitching at the top!

Julie! I love it! I have always wanted to sew, but my attempts have always been less than stellar. How cool would it be to be able to quilt - I have so many ideas, I just can't create them LOL. I will stick with my crochet, I can do that :)
Good to see you are keeping yourself busy too <3

I'm useless with a needle/sewing machine, but dang, that's cute. I hope you sell LOTS this summer!
