Since my sis is back from college my parents wanted to go grocery shopping for her. Lucky me because I finally got to use my money from my tutoring job to buy fabric.
Now since I live in the desolate plains of Missouri I have a small collection to choose from when it comes to fabric shopping. Most of the time I resort to Walmart.
But today it was actually pretty AWESOME. They had everything, I mean EVERYTHING on sale. I bought 10 yards of fabric for 10 dollars. A polka dot print for 2 yards for 4. And this thin blue fabric for 75 cents a yard. 75 FRIGGIN CENTS.
I also bought a pattern (which I’ll modify anyway) and some thread. And all together it came up to be around 22 dollars.
I got 16 yards of fabric plus a pattern plus black and white thread for a good 22 dollars. Now I’m a happy camper. :)

Made another bag. :D This was made out of the leftover fabric I had from the pillows
Not to sound like I’m bragging or anything but my sewing skills have greatly improved. :) But I still had a lot of bad stitching here and there while making this. :/
Oh well, can’t wait to move onto clothing! :D

It was a really late night and somehow creativity sparked. (I was totally surprised.)
And so I started sketching. Now if only I could actually make these. :/
Hopefully one day I will! :D

Just learned how to hand-sew today and this is what I made with some scrap fabric.
I’ll go into quick detail on how to make this.
1. Cut out two squares and have them the same size. (Leave some space on all sides for the seams. Make more space at the top so you’ll be able to fold over the fabric at the top.)
2. Lay the pieces of fabric right on top of each other. (Make sure that the good sides of the fabric are facing each other. So the lighter, transparent side shows.)
3. Pin three sides of the fabric together.
4. Sew only three sides of the fabric. (If you sew all 4 sides you can’t stuff it. :()
5. Now since you’ve finished sewing the sides together. (Hopefully you didn’t prick yourself too much.) Pull the fabric on the inside, outside. So now the bright fabric will be showing. :D
*If you wanted a pillow case. Guess what? You’re done! If you want to make the pouch life the one I did above well I’ll keep on going. :D
6. Take the opening side of the pouch and fold out the border. Once that is finished. Fold it in. Now pin.
7. Now all you have to do is sew. But be careful you should only sew through two layers of fabric. Cause the opening will be stuck closed. Now just take the other side and do the same. :D
Sure hope this will help. :D It’s kind of a quick step tutorial so sorry if there is any confusion.
Still can’t believe my first sewing project turned out this well. I’ll be sure to post more. :D
