I just joined the sewing club!Why 2 pictures? The top picture shows the sewing better, and the bottom photo shows the true colors. This is red hot off the sewing machine. It needs a good steam pressing, but I was too excited to take a photo and get it on my blogsite. No Patience whatsoever!

I haven't sewn in over 20 years... other than Frizzy Lizzy the doll. So it really feels good to have completed a project and affirm my ability to sew.


This is by no means perfect... but it's a finished product (other than the pressing). Now, I'm ready to get online and order some really fun fabrics and patterns and sew, sew, sew.


Thanks for the inspiration to all you sewers in blogland!

PS This wasn't a pattern... sketched it from a Vera B. purse.


PSS Frizzy Lizzy knows who she'd like to be loved by. So, tomorrow she's traveling in the mail to one of you out there.
So someone will be getting a surprise!

Yummy Yummers! The bag looks devine! I never made a bag, you’re a very talented woman! No pattern? What a waste, no sewing for twenty years....
