Last week, Mindy & I started working on the purses for her wedding. She came over one night and we cut out pattern pieces and I got started on a bit of sewing.
Then over the weekend, I made the sewing machine my best friend. I finished the first purse before dinner on Saturday and had the last one done by Monday afternoon.
I also put together a checkbook cover for Mindy that had been ready for the sewing machine for months. The only complaint? When a beginner pattern wants you to miter the corners, but then doesn’t explain how to do it properly. I had to fake that part a bit.
Lastly, I tried to make my own pattern. It still has a few kinks, but isn’t bad for the first attempt.
