Last week, I had this completely decadent selfish few days. First I had a massage that I have been waiting for 2 years to get. Then I went to the advanced screening of The Avengers with my pal, Lisa.
So I decided to continue my indulgence and sew myself a new purse after my old/new one ripped.
With all the stuff I need to carry around, it was just too small.
My sweet husband actually went back to the fabric store for me and bought me more of that wonderful linen-blend fabric. Thank you, honey.
And I made another one.
I used my special button off of the original bag.
The clear advantage to making your own bag (click here for tutorial) is knowing your needs and customizing the bag to fit those needs. It works beautifully, that is, if you don’t shrink it. Heh.
My new sewing mantra:
Pre-wash. Pre-wash. Pre-wash.
I will say that it felt good to do some selfish sewing…and then doing it again.
What have you
shrunk sewn today?
