Ok, so I know all these posts are about sewing, but that’s my current kick so you’re just going to have to like it or lump it. About a year ago I bought some fabric from reprodepot.com, that’s pink and has tattoo images on it (skulls, hula girls, hearts with knives sticking through them, snakes, etc.), that I had wanted to sew a tote bag with. It was going to be my knitting bag, since I’d found the pattern in a wonderful book called Stitch n’ Bitch. Well, after my first sewing class I decided to break out on my own and do a project all by myself – hence this here fabulous tote bag. It turned out pretty well, the only weird thing about it being that the pattern was rotated 90 degrees from the selvage ends of the fabric. So, in the end, the pattern is sideways on the bag, but I guess every project is a lesson learned, right? I’m going to bring my bag in next week for a little sucking-up teacher’s pet session; the two other girls in the class (ages and 13 and 14) just really have no idea who they’re dealing with!!!
One thought on “Anne, you’re very proud of me, right???”
Aw, that’s so cool ~ a tote bag! I AM proud.>Reprodepot fabric is so hip, and JoAnn is always nice – make sure you get on their mailing list for 40% off one item coupons. Oh, and Superbuzzy.com is an awesome Japanese fabric store. There’s more, but you don’t want to go totally broke.>>That’s so great. Go Marci!
