My First Ever Sewing Project

Added Aug 13, 2012

Paranaque City, ...






This is my Charlie Bag! My very first encounter with the sewing machine… ever. I zigzagged the edges because I did’t have a serger, and the bag wasn’t lined, I messed up my stitches around the edges….ewww! But that’s okay, right? I’m so proud of this. I think I’m hooked. : )

    Great choice for your first project. I love the fabric you chose! The organge is nice and bright, and the flowers give it a cute feminine touch. Great job!

      Thank you! You know how it is when you get to the fabric store and there’s a sea of colors and designs begging for you to grab them? It can be nauseating! But this one popped right out to me. It was so expensive a fabric for a grocery bag, but then never mind! It’s my first! Haha… Thank you for your kind words. I appreciate it!

    Well done and welcome to sewing :) The Charlie Bag is a good pattern to start with as it’s pretty straightforward, I’m making a heap of Charlies as presents for my work colleagues for Christmas this year.

      How wonderful that you are commenting on my simple project. I’m so blessed. Thank you! My sewing is for my own consumption for now. I need to work on making my stitches pretty and neat first before they can be gift-worthy. : ) Practice, practice, practice!
