About 2 years ago my sweet hubby got me a sewing machine for my birthday. Since then I have made numerous things (nursing aprons for friends with babies, burb rags, blankets...etc.), but really have made only things with straight easy lines. This past weekend, my friend and I decided to endeavor out on a different sewing journey. We made bags from an actual pattern (Amy Butler to be exact). I was a little terrified that I was going to get half way through my first bag and be completely confused and not be able to finish it, but alas it was a lot easier than I thought. Now that I feel that I have conquered bags, I'm onto quilts. Oh and the green item on the left of picture is actually a bib.
