I enjoyed Thursday night very much. Eric was out in the garage taking the rear brakes on his truck apart and the kids were sleeping in their beds. Well, actually the boys were sleeping on their floor. Don’t ask me why, ‘cause I don’t know. Anyway, with everyone happy, what’s a girl to do?
I fixed a cup of tea and headed to my neglected sewing room. I’d like to tell you that I cleaned it up and made it serviceable. The would be a lie. Actually, I moved everything off the old desk I use for sewing and called it good. Don’t judge me. ;)
I cranked up some good music and got to cutting and sewing. This is what I ended up with.
The pattern and materials came from my favorite fabric store, Holly Hock. I had been looking forward to putting this together for weeks.
It has nice pockets for my sunglasses and my phone. I love how the straps tie on to these nifty grommets.
It’s so much fun learning to sew. I have lots left to learn, but with each project it gets a little easier and a lot prettier! This purse was very easy, and I finished it in one night. I learned to make straps in a new way and I had a lot of fun making pockets. The grommets were intimidating, but actually very simple to put into the fabric.
It’s so nice to find a few hours of free time.
