First Sewing Project

Well, here’s the results from my first sewing project!

The seams aren’t perfect, but they’re mostly hidden and you can’t tell without really nosing around inside. As its lined it’s nice and strong, but the wide handles make it comfy to carry even heavier loads (I used it to carry my things to work today – it ended up carrying 4 large library books, 2 purses, mobile phone, a drink, some bread, and another folded up shopping bag). I think this is something I might try again with a few additions – a small pocket inside for my phone and a loop to secure my keys to would be very handy.

Made from half a recycled tablecloth (50p) and about a metre of calico (£1.50).

Made following the instructions at Craftster
