Look What I Can Do!

Hey guys! Hey! Look what I did!
So yes, this bag is a little basic but it's the first sewing I've done since middle school. Can I tell you how excited I was? Picture a puppy on crack. But more. 
I've been wanting to get back into sewing for awhile now, but I've been afraid that I was going to, ya know... suck. Even though this bag is something a toddler could sew with their eyes closed, it still gave me confidence. Now I want to sew everything.
My Plan? To ransack every thrift store within 100 miles and go crazy. Do you think I'm addicted? Don't answer that question.

Oh I love it! It's far better than the 2 purses I'd attempted to make (to sell! ha!) at Bonnaroo a few years back. You might have inspired me to pick up my sewing machine from my parents house today :)

Well done!!! I used to spend a lot of time sewing, and have been wanting to get back into it. You've totally inspired me. I know how you feel, it can be quite addicting! Looking forward to seeing all that you create. I'm loving your new bag.
