Ok, so this thread inspired me to dig out my Moms sewing machine. After she passed away I vowed to learn to sew with it because its a really nice one! Well, after an hour of figuring out how to thread it, I finally got to work sewing my pieces together.
I made a mistake with the lining, its inside out so all the stitching shows on the inside, but I use it as my scrap bag for fabric now though. I need to remember to keep the good sides of the lining facing the good side of the bag when I sew them together.
Im working on a tote for myself right now. I love this tutorial!
