~ brown-ish tote bag ~

03 April 2006

i finished my first sewing project (if you don’t count the pin-cushion i did the other day)! hooray!

yep, i’m venturing to the craft of sewing. wish me luck. it’s actually much harder than i thought. so, my first project, which is quite plain and simple, is a tote bag for ari.


on Saturday, we both went shopping for fabric, and it took me two days to sew this thing… sloooow. well, i think i’ll get faster as i practice.

it has a green flowery lining with fake leather fabric as the strap.


and small pouch on one side where he can put his cellphone, pens and little wallet.


i’m sooo happy, i can finally put my sewing machine to use… and actually learned how to use it :D

oh, i didn’t know you sew! yeah, i made up the pattern in my head. i copied bits and pieces of it from another bag with different size and from a paper shopping bag. i think that’s why it was all slow… i should’ve made the pattern on paper first…

you mean selling it? naah, not yet. my sewing skill is not yet up to par… or at least i’m not comfortable with it yet. maybe down the road :)
