Yay! I'm a Seamstress!!!

haha! not really--Today I started my VERY FIRST sewing project!
I took an old skirt (I should've taken a "before" picture) and cut it apart, and after being introduced to Mom's sewing machine, endeavored to create a messenger bag!
What's funny is that I was just on Ebay last week contemplating whether to purchase one, and I didn't even find one that I halfway liked under $30! So with a knee length khaki skirt (from a second-hand store for $2) , I created a medium-large Khaki messenger bag--complete with a strap made from the waistband! It took 6 hours (10am-4 pm) and alot of thinking (hehe!) but I'm so proud of it!!

She selects wool and flax and works with eager hands.

Wow, Mia!

You should be proud! The bag is too cute!!

I haven't learned how to sew yet (except for buttons :), but I'm looking forward to the experience. :)
