My first completed sewing project and there are a lot of mistakes, but I learned a lot along the way.

The lining is an old skort which I had never worn and the material - although you cant really see it - is glittery denim, with a slight stretch to it.

First ever zippered pocket and first time trying any of the strap hardware too. That seemed to be the easiest part. to be honest I spent most of the day deciding what handles to make and whether or not to have a flap over the top or just an opening.

Anyway, I'm glad its done and will probably try another one now I know what 'not 'to do Smiley

Thanks.

Looks great! Wink especially for your first sewing project. Great job on the zippered pocket, zippers can be such a pain.

Thanks Smiley I really enjoyed doing the zipper, weirdly enough! It was the only thing I went and used a tut for. Everything else was a case of "I fancy a ..." which caused me more trouble than I bargained for lol

Thank you! I really wish I could find that material itself because it is lovely and really only went so far. Horrible for clothing, but great for bags or other little items. I think I got the skirt for 50p or something! Smiley
