Project

tote bag

What are you most proud of? I am a great procrastinator, putting off till tomorrow what I long to do today. I have more than a few UFO's (unfinished objects) and continue to buy patterns and courses on Craftsy, but am really lax about starting anything. Until this spring when I became inspired and started and finished this project within 1 day. thanks Craftsy and Jenny for inspiring me to get busy and get crafting! What advice would you give someone starting this project? take your time and go step by step. I found it really useful to use my walking foot once I had quilted the outside of the bag as it was quite thick and that made it much easier on my old kenmore sewing machine. . I had to let go of my perfectionist tendencies when I was quilting the bag. my lines were not always straight but I am satisfied with the result.
