Suffering from a lack of scrapbook mojo, but still feeling the urge to create, I decided to try my hand at making a cute purse I saw in the September issue of Marie Claire Idées. After a struggle to understand the French instructions (endroit contre endroit?; Piquer? ) I triumphantly displayed my new sac du mecredi to Lucas.
It's been so long since I sewed anything but scrapbook pages that I wasn't sure if me or my machine would be up to the challenge. I really enjoyed using my creative energy in a different way and plan to dig out my sewing patterns!
