My honey got me a new sewing machine. My other machine I had for about 15 years finally just stopped sewing correctly. The one the the church gave me quit working correctly too.
When I got married it wasn't a week before I had to buy a sewing machine. It was a used sewing machine but it was perfect as far as I was concerned. I was only 19 years old at the time. Some 44 years ago and 4 sewing machines since then. A sewing machine is essential to my well being so to speak. Creating things, makes me a very happy person.
"Now for my 2 little projects."
We are headed to a week-end of camping tomorrow. There were two things I needed for my vintage motor home. A bag for plastic bags (see tutorial-click here) and a sturdy bag for the smaller #10 dutch oven.
My dear hubby has been trying his hand at dutch oven cooking while camping. We started out with a smaller dutch oven and then we got a larger one. I had a large denim bag I had made a few years ago, and it fit the larger dutch oven. I now needed a smaller bag. So the second little project is a denim bag.
I had a piece of denim in my fabric stash. It worked perfect for the smaller bag. Both bags have a drawstring top. This makes the bag easy to put the dutch ovens in and close up.
I really am enjoying my new sewing machine and learning the different things it can do. The machine also made doing these little projects a pleasure.
