It's National Sewing Month...but really everyday can be a sewing day! They have a contest going on right now and I entered my project.
I just love making handbags...they are easy and I love picking out all the fabrics. They also make great gifts! This Simplicity pattern is super cute.
Note the timeless gold Singer beauty in the background! I don't want to age myself but this is my moms sewing machine that is 30 plus years old. I'm pretty sure this thing made my childhood wardrobe along with countless other projects. I want to get my own but for now I borrow Ole' Goldie! They sure don't make them like they used to...
This is how it turned out...I just LOVE the black and ivory fabric!
A quick pic of the inside...
I made a small ribbon flower corsage (for my corsage tutorial go HERE) and attached a pin clasp so that it can be removed but its the perfect touch to the bag to go with the inside print.
ENJOY and celebrate National Sewing Month!
