I got a new sewing machine….
You see, what I didn’t mention in this post was that during my sewing class my machine was making a strange clanking noise, and the bottom thread kept breaking. My teacher thought something was wrong with the machine and suggested I take it back. She also suggested I get one from a dealer, as you get a lesson to learn the machine, and you have great warranties. So after shopping around a bit we, (we being me and my dear husband) decided on the Husqvarna Viking. I love it.
So anyway, with a new machine I was able to finish the bag. Remember I was pretty much figuring out the last few steps on my own. I did the best I could. I was able to insert the lining with no problem…
No, it’s not perfect, but pretty good for my first attempt at sewing something with a pattern. I think I am going to attempt some of the other bag patterns, just to familiarize myself with reading patterns. Stay tuned as I learn to sew! (Wow, how many times can I say pattern?)
