Oh Man !! I want to come right over and help you start digging in the storage building. That sounds like a blast. Wouldn't that be fun?
Go find that new machine. Get it out, dust off that box, open it up and get going.
*Laughs* Oh I wish I had some help, it is a big storage unit and it is as full as full gets (from people dying and saving things and moving around.) so I'm not even sure where I'd start looking. So for now I'm hand sewing everything until whenever I can find the sewing machine. I was eyeing some at Wal-Mart the other night - they had some limited edition "Project Runway" one that caught my eye. Probably just because I adore that show.
Don't need much when it comes to pouches, that's for sure. Nice fabric. Later on, it would be easy enough to add a lining in. Keep going! If you want a sewing machine and you are getting more interested in sewing, look up some of the cheaper learning machines and start saving some money.
My mother informs me that we have a few sewing machines (she use to make stuff) but they're buried deep in the storage building somewhere (incluing a brand new one - never been opened) so I'm hoping one day here I'll have one.
Made this last night. Hand sewn. I messed up on the lining so it doesn't have one. (This is the third thing I've made.) I'm kind of just winging everything and practicing to learn. I've added a velcro closure since I took the photos.
