Ah, finally... a completed sewing project. I'm quite proud of this one, even though I literally hit a snag here and there. But, one broken needle later and many glances at the manual and I have this retro beauty.
I'm not new to sewing but, I'd still call myself a beginner. I used the folk bag pattern from the book, One Yard Wonders (which means this purse only cost me $12 to make!) The instructions were easy to follow and I learned a much smarter way to make a pocket and insert a lining. I'm going to make another one of these bags with the Heather Ross ponies fabric I've been saving. I had a bit of fabric left over so maybe a matching ipod case or card wallet is to follow.
