Before this blog was a sewing blog, I was already sewing a ton, but mostly I was sewing tote bags and other little things. So two years ago, when my friend Tan asked for guest posts for her blog Squirelly Minds while she was out on vacation, I jumped at the chance of writing this post. See, the bag I’m sharing the how to on her blog was actually the first thing I ever sewed on my first ever sewing class. And yes, you can bet it’s easy. I wrote a super detailed post on her blog with pictures and step by steps. It almost looks overwhelming, but remember: I made that bag in my FIRST TIME EVER sewing anything. Like, I got to the class and just expected to sew with some scraps and figure out the machine, and I come out WITH A BAG. A BAG. That still gets ton of uses to today, three and a half years later.
If you’ve been inspired by all this sewing I’ve been making, why not start the same place I did? Go check out my post on Tan’s blog and start sewing! And yes, you can always leave me a note here or on social media if you need any help or if any instruction is not clear. I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
