Learning How To Sew

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today to share that I’m learning how to sew!!  Yes, my daughter and a couple of online classes are teaching me how to sew.  I have to say I am loving it!!

I use to be so afraid of the sewing machine but my daughter showed me that there isn’t anything I should be afraid of.

Let’s take a look:

First Bag:

This bag is called the Runaround Bag.  I learned how to make this bag by taking the Zip It UP class taught by Joan Hawley.  Super easy and fun class.  Joan made sewing so easy.  When I didn’t understand, my daughter stepped right in and showed me what I was doing wrong.

I used my seam ripper a lot for this project, LOL!!!

Fusible Fleece

I learn how to sew a zipper and it wasn’t intimidating at all.

I used Therm·O·Web HeatnBond Fleece Fusible to give this bag some stability but keeps it nice and soft.

The fabric and zipper is from Joann Craft Store. It’s so pretty. I went back the store and they didn’t have any more of this print.  It was one of their quarter fat fabric that they replace only if it shows up on their truck.

Second Bag:

The second bag I created is called the Sweetpea Pod Bag!!  Now this one is super cute.  I made this bag for my mother.  She wanted a little bag to carry her change in.

Doesn’t this bag look like a pea?  I love how it takes its own shape based on the zipper placement.

This fabric is also from Joann.  The outside fabric is called Ah Rain Dots from the Alexander Henry Collection.

Once the bag is open, it sits by itself evenly.  You can see right in the bag with ease.  The HeatnBond Fusible Fleece gives this bag stability to that it could stand by itself.

Look at how the change sits so nicely in the bag.

The fabric inside is called Ah Polka from the Alexander Henry Collection.

Fits right in the palm of my hand.  Perfect!!

What do you think?

I totally love how my bags turned out.  I can’t wait to get back to my daughter’s sewing machine so that I could create some more.

I’m thinking about opening a store for these bags.  What do you think?  Do you like my bags and would these bag sell in a store?  I would love to hear from you and what you think.

National Sewing Month might be over but I’m not done with sewing!!!
