So this is my newest homemade bag. I made it over spring break. Everyone keeps complementing me on it and seem shocked to find out I made it.
I simple cut up an old shirt my neighbor gave me and sewed it up....well, I wish it were that simple. My sewing machine was on the fritz, the thread kept popping out, I lost my scissors plenty of times, and then the bag didnt want to sew correctly. I forgot to sew the interior pocket in before I sewed the 2 sides of the lining together, so when I sewed it on, it decided it needed to be attached to both sides of the lining...I had to rip it apart, leaving a hole which I simply patched up.
Next, once it was all sewed up, one of the straps didn't sew on completely and the bottom corner of the outside didnt sew either...
so after I fixed it all up:
polka dot button up.
