A Stitch Here & There

Today I worked on my husband's clothes. Hemmed his work pants and a pair of shorts, both of which were ripped in the crotch area, and shortened a new pair of pants so he's not walking or tripping on them. So, a good and productive day! Not going to bother posting pics for this one.

Wine Bag

Okay, with the scrap fabric from the last project I decided to make a simple Wine Tote Bag as an added gift with the wine. I cannot name who this is for for fear that they will see this and the surprise is lost. Anyway, here it is! After it was completed I realized I probably should've used a different color fabric for the ties, but oh well!

Tea for Me!

Okay folks, this was my VERY FIRST TIME using a sewing machine! I made this 8 Bag Tea Wallet. Button closure and all! I used 3 different presser feet: General Purpose, Buttonhole, & Button. I planned on taking pictures throughout the project process but got excited while it was coming together and forgot...
I think it turned out extremely well, for a first-timer! See for yourself!
