Okay, since I am posting, I must have made/be making something, right? Right. I made 2 Green Bag Lady bags! I'm using them to wrap my parents Christmas presents. I used store-bought reusable bags to wrap my friends gifts last year and was motivated to make a few of my own this year, thanks to Sew, Mama, Sew!
I actually think I did a pretty good job with these! I even modified the handles by sewing them wrong side out, then pulling them right side out, instead of leaving the sewn edge visible as shown in the pattern.
One thing I didn't think about/anticipate when I decided I wanted to sew...all of the IRONING I would have to do. UGH. I hate to iron. If I accidentally buy something that needs to be ironed, I usually wear it once, wash it, then it sits wrinkled in my closet until I give it away. Ironing flat fabric was not as bad as a shirt or pants, but I was still miserable 5 minutes in. I guess I'm just going to have to suck it up if I am going to keep learning.
My next post will be on sewing corners. In fact, I have already failed horribly on my next project, but I will save that for another day.
