Starting Again!

Well, it’s only been about 4 years since I last posted! (ugh!) But I have been sewing a lot this summer so I wanted to post an update :).

I made my first ever purse! I followed along with my Craftsy class instructor and took it slowly step by step.. and am so very happy with it!

It has FOUR outside pockets and 2 inside pockets :)!!! I added the ribbon detail otherwise tried to follow the directions pretty exactly! The class is Colorful Patchwork Bags and Baskets by Caroline Fairbanks-Critchfield and I loved it! I still want to make some baskets, and eventually other purses!

I also made a reversible wrap skirt following along with another Craftsy class! This one was Project Upcycle by Betz White :). I still have to make the buttonhole and may try to hem it a little… I will see how it sits when I have the buttonhole to put the ties through. I made one side navy and the other navy polka dot :)!

I also made 2 shirts this summer and I will add those another day!

Hugs!

Karen
