Friday Sewing

For the past couple of weeks, I've been doing a small sewing project each Friday. First, I made some pajama bottoms, which I probably won't post until I make the top. (I have been wearing them - with a t-shirt though!!) Last week I got out my new Simple Sewing book and practiced my skills on a Simple Tote out of some (dorky) fabric scraps I had lying around. And this morning, I took the book out again and whipped up this little backpack.You can't really tell from the picture, but I split the pocket into three compartments. One for knitting needles, perhaps?? Well, only if I could be sure they wouldn't fall out!!

So cute! The sewing machine, to this day, freaks me out. I'll stick to my larger-and-less-pointy needles, thanks. :)

Very cute! I've been wanting to learn to sew but we just don't have the space. When we add on to the cottage, there will absolutely be a craft room!

I love the bag, and the colors do not look dorky! Love them. I cannot wait to see the pajamas that you made. I usually make those for the kiddies here. Um...in the summer when I have time. :)
