In the mean time here is my next project. It is a duffle bag and the pattern is from StudioCherie. (This is not a paid advertisement. I just really like this pattern)
I purchased this pattern almost three years ago when I had a different sewing machine and not the best sewing machine skills. I started this project then and it quickly became a big mess, so like any self respecting sewer, I put it in the closet for a later date. Jump ahead a year later and I gained some new skills and a new machine and ended up making three as Christmas gifts for my mother and two sisters. The next year I made one for my grandmother for Christmas.
I decided that since I have made one for everyone else, it was time to break out the mess and finish the first one I started. I pulled out my stitching, pressed it with some starch and a hot iron and started all over again. It is amazing the difference a stronger machine and a little sewing experience can make. This duffle bag is so much easier to make this time around especially since this is bag #5.
We will see how it turns out. Stay tuned for more...
Thanks for stopping by and happy sewing!
