I have my first finished sewing project of 2019! Even though I've been wanting to get enough courage to jump into sewing some garments this year. But I've already had fabric for this and a few other bags cut out and the sewing bug had bitten me today.
The pattern is a Simplicity one, number 1153, view F. The fabrics are; the Dia de Los Muertos print is a fat quarter from Walmart, the black for the bottom is also a fat quarter but from Joann's (leftover from other bags I had made), and the purple for the pocket is some leftover fabric that I got from Joann's a couple of years ago also to make project bags out of. The black pocket separates and trim is some single-fold bias tape from Walmart. The zipper is an all-purpose one in black, as well.
I'm pretty happy with the way it came out. It is a little lopsided but that's ok. My sewing in a straight line is getting much, much better. The project just proves it. It is probably the best bag I have made so far.
If you would like to keep an eye on what I've been working on lately, follow me on Instagram. I tend to a weekly update on my main work-in-progress there. I hope you have an awesome weekend!
