ok, I'm not going to beat around the bush here- I struggle with sewing! I've tackled a few sewing projects in the past weeks and this little bag here is the best thing I've made so far, even though it has some issues.
It looks ok from a distance, but upon closer inspection the flaws become apparent. That's why I'm calling it a semi-failure. I can still use it, but it's got problems.
Since I haven't had any success with using real patterns yet, I used a tutorial from Good Times Never Seem Sew Good to make this little bag. I do so much better when I have good pictures to show me what to do! It's an easy tutorial to follow- I only had problems because I tried to make my own variations. I think I'll just stick to the basics from now on.
