Sewing Projects

I just had to try out my new sewing machine, so I did two projects...

The first is just a zippered clutch made from the black velvety upholstery sample I got the other day.

I used the basic tutorial found here. Here is the fun fabric I used for the inside - it's a bandana I saw at WalMart for $0.50.

I added a ribbon so that you can wear it on your wrist while holding a drink:

I also made a skirt out of the scrap fabric I posted earlier. I used another skirt I had as a pattern, and even added a zipper!

I used the zigzag stitch for the hem, and I think it looks really good!
