Hi Everyone! This is my first post!!! Wahhoooo!
Anyway, I've been lurking for awhile and admiring everyone's creativity and talent, wishing I had the time to try my hand as well. That all changed when my company when out of business and I was hence laid off. So time was no longer a problem. I've thrown myself full-fledged into the sewing game and am really loving it! So here's the first project I ever created and actually gave to someone.
I took a Hawaiian shirt that my dad was going to throw away, removed the seams and pockets and turned it into a tote bag for my sister!
I worked with what I had: Black dress lining and white velcro. I'm still pretty happy with it. Since then, my stash has grown considerably
Hope you like it! I'll be posting several more items from my first months of sewing. Any comments/criticism/advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
