Take a look at what we had for our sewing room last week! I got my sewing machine all set up and plugged in and....nothing. The foot pedal didn't work at all. I fought with it for a while before stomping angrily on it and thinking some bad words finally did the trick.
I'll admit that I spent more time on my cross stitching than at my sewing machine, but I did get three bags done. One was a total flop, which sometimes happens when you're making things up as you go along.
This one is my favorite...
It started out as a flour sack dishtowel I found at the dollar tree and with some fusible interfacing and a thrifted zipper I think I turned it into a pretty little knitting bag.
