I have been nervous to sew a tote bag. Yes, a simple tote bag. Why? Probably because I am unique. Ha ha! Why? Others do it so much better. Yes, that is it. OTHERS!
I was talking with my buddy in Manitoba yesterday and asked her how her sewing projects were getting along. I got inspired. While I have been following other sewing/quilting type blogs, I have been building confidence.
Out came a pattern ~ fabric ~ scissors ~ and a brave heart!
This is what I came out with, and I am proud to say I HAVE SEWN A TOTE BAG! Yeah for ME!
|Can you see how proud I am? Confidence should be the word I use.|
|Can be worn around the neck too for hands-free|
|I did the pocket with an angle. Trying to be creative. Hard for me!|
|The pocket with the heart button and bling.|
|Being reversible means there's a pocket inside too!|
|Other view. The bottom is round,|
so I chose to use the opposite colors for effect.
Again, trying to be creative.
|My first tote bag completed!|
Have I said how happy sewing something makes me? HEE HEE. I will be posting pictures soon of some aprons I am making. Again, big thing for me. Some of my patterns were missing pieces or didn't have instructions, so I am bumbling my way through.
So ~ one little question of you ~ what has been intimidating you? Maybe it's time to show it who's boss!
