Yet another new hobby to obsess about...

I finally got my birthday present from Brian on the weekend - a sewing machine! I've had the gift card for a while (as my b-day was in August) but finally cashed it in the other day. These are a couple pictures of my first sewing project. Okay, not my VERY first, but I the only other item that I have sewn was a crappy skirt in Home-Ec class, in grade 9 I think (a million years ago). Anyways, I'm pretty excited about it! Even if it is just a little make-up bag... or pencil case... I'm not sure what I'll use it for - maybe even a wallet? The patches are just iron-ons that I can't decide between... but I am leaning more towards the owl, I think. I stayed up WAY past my bedtime sewing it - I'm sure the first of many to come :D


Now I just need to make about 20 more of them before November 3rd to sell at my little craft show/open house. Eek!
