Learning to sew!

Hi Everyone,
Last Christmas my husband bought me a sewing machine because I mentioned it would be fun to learn! Well, it sat in the box for a LONG time before I brought it out.  I am slowly trying little projects here and there to figure it all out.
Well.... my boys were invited to a birthday party for twin girls who have absolutely everything! Their mom said they love art, so I decided to attempt art purses for them.  I got in a little over my head because I didn't have a pattern and I had to make two, but in the end I am happy with how they turned out.  I got the writing tablets from the dollar store and covered them with decorative paper so they would match.

The girls loved them :-)  Paper is definitely easier to work with but I am slowly getting the hang of it!

Thank you for stopping by today!

Yes -- very ambitious for your first project! But they look fantastic & I'm sure the girls will use them for a long time.
