I found my sewing machine!

Hey yall. After seeing what all Chrissy has made with her new sewing machine (see The Story of Us on the right), I decided I wanted to break out my sewing machine. I bet I haven't used it in 5 years, but I managed to find all the parts and the book (since I can't remember how to use it). I went to Wal-Mart last night and bought the supplies to make a bag. Here it is!
I love how it turned out! I had to improvise a few times cuz I couldn't figure out what they were telling me to do.
I'm kinda scared of zippers. They take more skill than I currently possess, but I can live with the results.

It was so much fun! I'll definitely be making something again soon. Gotta eat some dinner now. Have a good evening!
