|Now that I look at it, it's actually kinda messy. But check out my table! Greg & I scored it for $5 at an auction.|
Well anyway...my machine got totally neglected for a REALLY long time. I sat down the other day to make some bags, and mess around with some other patterns, and guess what I found out? My skills are really, really rusty! I kept making such dumb mistakes; it was frustrating! I realized the other day that I have been sewing for about 15 years. That is astounding to me. That I have been doing anything for that long. But I think the quality of my finished projects could be a lot better.
So here's what I'm doing about that - and I think it'll be lots of fun, too (of course!) - I'm going to join a sew-along. Pink Chalk Studio is going through the book One Yard Wonders and I'm going to jump in this week!
They do two projects each week, and post on Friday. Being Thursday evening (last night) when I stumbled upon this little sewalong, I opted for one project this week. ;) The "Artist Brushes Case."
I didn't have any ribbon that I liked, so I did the ol' hairband-and-button thing. I actually like it a lot...maybe not as cute as a ribbon, but my other needle roll (oh yeah, this for me, is a knitting needle roll. Imagine that.) has a ribbon, and it's kind of a pain to tie & untie it all the time.
