1  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Introduce Yourself / hello I am new! on: February 26, 2012 03:23:20 PM
Hi I am Allyson aka Sonally. I am new here, but I have been sewing and doing crafts since I was a young girl.... I am 50, now, so I ought to be very skilled. Alas, it is not so! But I enjoy being creative... it is good for the soul! I am currently interested in quilting and doing anything that involves using my sweet (deceased) mother's old sewing machine.

I spent some lovely hours recreating these! I took my time and I have a few ideas to help me the next time: Make the pockets a smidge longer so I can be sure to get them sewn IN. Also, when I sew the middle seam to create two sides, I will always start from the bottom edge and sew UP. I messed up  on the Oriental fabric one, the ONLY one that had a one way design... figures! So, it opens backwards! The woman I will give it to, is very sweet , and will overlook my mistakes!  These were so much fun to make, and I will do several more, to keep aside for gifts for folks who need some TLC ... and a cup of tea!    
I am too new to post the pics, so i hope this link works!

I made my first Hobo bag. I got over confident and did not glance at directions often enough, so it took longer because i had to rip out seams!!! But it was easy, i love it and will make more... with less errors!
