I sewed!

I know for many of you, sewing is super easy, but for me, that's not the case! I was doing a challenge for the Project Runway scrapbooking challenge I'm part of, and it involved making a fun beach accessory. So, I had been wanting to try to make this bag for awhile, and finally decided to do it.

I'm embarrassed to say, I had to ask Ryan for help on this! He is a much better sewer than I am. (He defends his manliness by saying it's just like welding.) I was just glad he was there to help! He is so amazing and knows how or can figure out how to do pretty much anything!

He was helping me thread the machine and I kept getting it wrong and he just cut the thread so I had to keep doing it over and over till I got it right! I can definitely say I know how to do that now. :) That's why he's so good for me - he doesn't let me give up and he pushes me to be better. :)

Anyways, it was such a shocking sight while I was sewing that both of the kids were just sitting on top of their little Tikes cars watching me. Ryan had to come take a picture of me sewing in case it never happens again!

Here's a picture of the bag I made, in case you're interested. I used my die-cutting machine, the Sizzix Big Shot for Stampin' Up to cut out the butterflies and the Top Notes which I sewed together to make the bag! I was very happy with how it turned out, and now I can show my customers that the Big Shot can be used for sewing and other projects too! It's amazing all the different materials you can cut with this machine! Anyhew, that's all! :)
