As I mentioned in my previous post, I used some quilting scraps that were kindly given me to make a purse for my daughter's best friend for Christmas. I used this tutorial here. It was a lot of fun to make, and if I may say so I'm rather pleased with how it turned out. I'd say this was my first successful sewing project! Now that I am finally comfortable with my sewing machine, I can't wait to start my next project! This sewing thing is really fun...I wish I had gotten off my duff and figured out how to do it at a much younger age. In fact, there are many things I wish I would have spent my time on when I was younger, rather than watching tv and playing video games...but then that's a topic for another post. At least I'm learning some useful skills now--better late than never. :)
P.S.--Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends!
