Back in March @creativebug had a #cbstitchaday with @dropcloth and it was super fun.
I loved having built in motivation to work on a stitch everyday.
I also really loved the finished sampler and didn’t just want to stick it in a drawer or in a frame, so I made a project bag.
Sewing is still very new to me and not very intuitive so it took a lot to even get me to cut the fabric. But I am happy with the final result. The basic pattern was a great free tutorial from @jenib320 , super clear and lots of pictures.
My bag is completely handsewn for two reasons.
1. Because sewing by hand is very satisfying and quiet...minus my swearing occasionally of course
2. I’m still a little scared of using the sewing machine. 😉
