I *heart* my ipod and the silly case they give you with it scratches the front of it, so after seeing all of the ipod totes I was inspired to make my own.

Also, to continue showing off Smiley, I made this bag a few weeks ago:

and the inside:

(I also *heart* my freshly painted green table!)

I started sewing a few months ago when my dad gave me my greatgrandmothers sewing machine, I think it is beautiful and it makes a lovely chain stitch.

If anyone has any comments on my bags, please tell me!


p.s. sorry about the giant pictures!!

Oh my God, you used WONDERFUL fabric! I love it! Ilove your bag.
And your sewing machine... it's sooo beautiful. And it's still working!
I think it must feel kind of magic when you use something that belonged to your greatgrandmother... I envy you!

I love that machine, I too have a treadle machine my gran gave me, I use it to make quilts and its awesome for sewing really pain in the assafras areas because you can sew super slow.

Thanks you guys!  I used to the messenger bag tutorial https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=2684.0 for both bags, (just tiny for the ipod tote!)
My only complaint about my sewing machine is that if I am sewing for awhile my leg starts to get sore!  But if there were ever a black out, I could keep sewing!  Wink
