Learning to sew.

I’ve been trying to dive right into sewing. There’re so many things I want to make.

One of my first projects was this ruffled felt pillow—How About Orange has a tutorial. Despite how easy the project is, I wasn’t quite able to make my ruffle straight. So, I’m learning….

I found a really cute bag on Made By Rae—she has a free pattern & tutorial. I didn’t use my favorite fabric for my first try—a good thing since I made plenty of mistakes. I’d definitely use a more heavy-duty fabric next time. There’re lots of cool pics of the Buttercup Bag on Flickr.

Next time, I will try a button closure—the magnet clasp is too much. Other variations of the bag include a bigger size and a longer strap.

I learned how to do pleats for the first time with this project—how exciting!
