I'm finally putting pictures up of my purse I made a few months ago!!  Holli calls it a satchel, which by definition it probably is.  I'm resisting the urge to look 'satchel' up in the dictionary..... resist!  Either way, I made this purse/satchel all on my very own!  I followed the tutorial from Caroline ( and it actually turned out better than I thought it would!  Just don't look too close....  

This was a big project for me and a huge accomplishment!  Sewing is really pretty easy once you get the hang of it!  Later I sewed a make-up brush holder for my dear friend Kaylyn, and now I'm working on some surprises for work Christmas gifts! Lovely Anisa gave me a pattern for an adorable dress to sew and that project still scares me... I haven't broken the clothing barrier yet, but I'm thinking that her pattern just might be what I need to start!

I love to sew, and one day I hope to have my own sewing machine.  Thankfully my wonderful mother has one that I can use.  I like sewing with her there anyways so maybe I'll never get my own sewing machine and always bum off of her.  :)

Now for the pictures!!
