We are experiencing a massive blizzard at the moment. I picked up this fabric last week and discovered, I didn’t buy nearly enough for regular pillowcase (what was I thinking)?! So I picked up a 16×16 pillow at Walmart yesterday and made this. It was easy, but not that easy LOL!!
I am on a mission to learn how to properly install a zipper and attach tote handles. The zippers are giving me fits. Sometimes they come out great, and most of the time, not so good. I need to figure out why its so inconsistent. I think my pinning/clipping is not so great and things get wonky. Look at those cats! I’m making myself a bag with them!
We are watching tutorials on YouTube today… Good thing I have already watched it 20 times. I still like to let it play while I attempt to make this tote. I get nervous trying to do things from memory, or from my notes. I need visuals.
I was asked by my mother what I wanted for Christmas and I really didn’t know. I went into a quilt shop on a whim looking for buttons. Their button selection was sad, but the store was enormous!! I had to take a look around. It was a slow day and the owner talked me into trying out a machine. I made 2 coasters. It was fun! I had not sewn since middle school. I received an ‘F’ on a drawstring bag and never threaded a needle again. I was a disaster! All that cutting a measuring, I figured it was not for me.
I went back to the store the day after Christmas and picked this out. Its a beginner machine, which is perfect ’cause I don’t know what I’m doing! It’s so cute. I fancied it up with washi tape and stickers 🙂 One day I will go back for a Bernina… which I get some skills…. and some $$$ LOL!
