Latest Offering....

Ok, Until last week I had not actually touched a sewing machine despite going to a sewing class for a few weeks!!

I managed to create some more sock monkeys using it and then thought I would have a go at a bag!!

I also had never made a Yo Yo and made this to embellish the bag.

I really am pleased with the end result, despite the wonky stitching and I have also realised a couple of other errors, but hey I am learning!!
I am hoping to manage a few more bits and pieces as I need to develop these skills quickly as I have some fairs booked that require fabric work!!
Any tips on easy to make items would be most welcome!
