2013 Recap

We had an awesome year this year. Of course there were ups and downs. There are always struggles along the way. But we're happy. And that's all that matters in the end.

Happy New Year!

Projects Galore! - small bag

I'm in my project mode before Christmas again. I've probably done more homemade gifts this year than ever, but I'm loving it. My mom's birthday is in November, so she double benefits from this project lust. This year for her birthday, I made her a little bag that can be used for jewelry or makeup or whatever. I own a sewing machine, but hadn't used it much until this fall. I'm not very good yet, but I was really happy with how this turned out! (Note, this is the second version, I messed up the first version and the zipper wouldn't open.)

It's even lined! I'm so proud of myself!
I liked it so much I made one for myself, too. What do you think?

This is the tutorial I used.
