Mini Sewing Sesh

This past weekend was my brother’s wedding and I got to stay with the bestie Jaime! She’s new to sewing so I took this opportunity to show her how to construct a tote bag. We headed over to Hobby Lobby {holy moly I have never been there before, wow what the heck?! Why don’t we have one here?!}, got some lovely ikat and chevron home dec fabric, took it home and got to work.

I had decided that I would show her how to make the tote and that one would be hers. Then she would have to make the same bag for me!

She did a super good job! All the seams are straight and it hasn’t even fallen apart! Haha.

Love this stitch!

Im using it for all of Oliver’s Toys when we go out and about.

And in return, she showed me how to make something! Which I am in love with!

Are you new to sewing? Have you taken any classes or perhaps you’ve taught someone? I’d love to hear your experience!
