So I got a sewing machine for Christmas, and I've been practicing until I felt ready to make my first bag and wallet. The bag is a simplicity pattern (can't remember the #); I used the pattern but made up my own instructions, partially because I find simplicity instructions hard to follow and partially because I wanted to modify it a bit (I wanted the pockets on the inside instead of the outside, and it called for a zipper but I'm just not ready for that yet).
Please don't mind the puppy in the background
Inside pockets (don't mind the kitty either)
I used this tutorial for the wallet: http://darnkat.wordpress.com/quilted-fabric-wallet-tutorial/
I don't know if this is in the tutorial list or not, but it should be, because it was very clear and easy to follow. Mine turned out kinda crooked because I didn't measure everything perfectly square like I should have
but it's still good for my first wallet and it serves its purpose.
This fabric doesn't match the purse or wallet but I just LOVE it and it fits my personality exactly
I was scared that my machine couldn't sew through the 3 layers of webbing at the bottom, but she chewed right through it without any problems. She's a good girl!
*Edit* a few of the pictures aren't working now, I'll fix them soon, sorry!
