The Practice Run Crayon Roll

The lovely ladies on the Sewing Thread on MSE have filled me with so much inspiration, I have a list of gifts I want to make for christmas the first being co-ordinating Crayon Rolls and drawstring bags (Thanks to Dizzytina for the idea).

I have bought my material ready but didn't want to chance messing it up so I practiced using some tea-towels, it's not perfect but I'm happy with it!

My First Proper Bit of Sewing

Well my Sewing Machine is nearly a year old, and I'm quite embarassed to say it's not had much use, I picked up some lovely material and have been meaning to make a bag for while! So I had the bright idea of making a start yesterday, for my first attempt I am thrilled to bits! It's really given me the bug now and I can't wait to start the next project!
