I finally broke out my sewing machine!! Oh yes. That's what a three day weekend can motivate you to do! I'm excited to say that I actually used my sewing machine for the first time this weekend and even created something I love!
little lot of perseverance getting the machine ready to sew and ripping out a stitch or two lots of stitches, I finally had a breakthrough and had success with my first time sewing!
DIY Potholder Mini Makeup Bag
I started with a potholder.
(You can find them cheap at Wal-Mart for less than $2 for a two-pack.)
I folded it in half and stitched up both sides with a zig-zag stitch.
I added a button that was left over from a piece of clothing.
(You know those extra ones you get and hardly ever use.)
And there you have it. It's working beautifully to hold my lip stuff together in one place in my purse!
I'm so excited. And I'm pretty sure I've caught the sewing bug!
So, do you sew? If "sew", what was your first project? Your favorite project?
