Project

My first drawstring bag!

What are you most proud of? I haven't sewn anything lined like this and I really like my first attempt. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Using up-cycled material is sort of a challenge since I wasn't starting with nice straight fat quarters. The material were very different for the lining and outside, so I just faked it a little. The teacher on this class is very exact and I learned a lot from her, but I didn't follow all the seam allowance measurements and sort of just guessed my way through this- and it came out fine. Now that I know the basic steps I might follow the pattern more closely next time.
