My sewing machine has been collecting dust recently, due to the busyness that has been these last few months. When my life gets busy, creativity really takes a hit.
So on a recent day off, I decided to pull out the sewing machine, and put it to use.
I had a plain tote bag that needed some flair, and an old handkerchief with a pretty pattern. Side note: it really is amazing what treasures can be discovered in your very own closet. I cut the handkerchief, hemmed the sides, and sewed it on the front of the bag as a pocket. I also sewed a pocket on the inside of the bag with some extra canvas material, because pockets rock.
Presto…a great new bag! Who needs to spend hundreds on fashion accessories? Not this gal.
