BASIC BLACK









A few days ago, I quickly put together a basic tote bag to refresh my sewing skills for a couple sewing projects I've been meaning to get to (for like, a year). I think I got the proportions about right, but it could still use a little tweaking. Even so, I'm always surprised and thrilled by the high of filling a functional void by making something useable for myself. Joy in the small things. And of course, all done with a little help from resident napping dog, Toby.

Oh, I am *SO* glad you are into sewing! This is great! ... I think you would be my dream sewing friend...
I actually just recently sewed a organic linen dress on commission for a customer that I'm planning to feature tomorrow on my blog...
Sew more! I promote sewing, it's very liberating.
