Late night

Well I finished my first tote bag.  It’s not the best I’ve ever seen but it’s a start.  I found a flannel blanket in the clearance corner of Ikea.  It was only 40p so I thought it would be perfect as practice material. 


I also worked on a new pincusion. 


Again it’s not perfect but I like it.  It’s much nicer than my first pincusion.  I was up until 3:45 sewing.  I must be nuts but I just really wanted to finish.  I don’t have time to do it during the day.  Esme is usually full tilt so me thinks I’ll have more late nights ahead of me!!

I’m still trying to get the hang of sewing together 2 circles.  I think I have my machine settings wrong.  The last machine I used would pull the fabric along for you a little.  This machine doesn’t do that- so I’m hoping I just have to set it correctly.

The tote in all it’s wonkyness!
