Home sweet home – sewing weekend

After browsing of Pinterest over and over again it was time to actually make something, on the sewing machine this time. Using a great, easy tutorial my choice was a small make-up bag. My goal of this project was to practice sewing with zippers.

After an hour or so I was finished with my first one. Super proud I took a photo and sent it to my sisters. They shared my enthusiasm (yeah!) and asked me to make one right away! Of course, no problem! She picked out the fabrics and a nice contrasting zipper, and Β an hour later the little bag had a duplicate.

Believe it or not, but while I was making that second bag my other sister came to ask me if I could make one for her as well…of course!

And for those who know me personally know I have a total of three sisters (two real ones and one got married into our family) and by the end of the day the third sister ordered another two (!!). Β Making the last one only took me 35 minutes πŸ™‚

Watch and enjoy!
