So it's been just over a month since I purchased a sewing machine... and I love it! I made this purse out of an old pair of jeans and some leftover scraps of fabric. I made another purse from a pattern, a cozy warm neck cowl and even a dress. But the dress unfortunately did not turn out how I wanted it to... but I'm learning with each new item I sew! I can't even remember the last time I used a sewing pattern before this. Probably not since I was in high school! Anyway, I just wanted to show off my cool new purse. I love it!
