Look wHOO sewed her first bag!

HI!!!  You guys may have not known this but I have been without the internet since Monday!  Seriously you would have thought I lost a limb.  How did I survive most of my childhood without it I will never know! With that said I want to apologize for not replying to emails, comments, or stopping by your blogs and saying hello.  My google reader is a bit overwhelming at the moment so I am slowly catching up on what you guys have been up too.

A few moths ago I bought The Make Your Getaway Duffle PDF pattern by Gingercake.  My intentions were to make each of the girls a duffel bag to use when we travel.  Once I got the pattern I felt like I had bitten off a little more then I could chew but I tackled it anyway.  Well about half way through I got frazzled and put it away hoping that I would get the motivation (and guts) to finish it.  During this last week in the "dark ages" I was able to do just that!!  And I must say I am pretty proud of myself.  Not only does it look like it is supposed to but it came together without a hitch!!  All the pieces matched up perfectly.  It definitely was a boost to my sewing confidence!  





What do think? Isn't that the cutest fabric?  I added the piping and made my handles wider.
I am in love!  Now just to start on the next one.

Does anyone else dislike cutting out fabric or am I the only one?

  1. So cute, Andi! That fabric is adorable. I hate cutting out fabric. It is probably my least favorite part of any project.
