What Sofie did on Sunday....

Yesterday, Sofie decided she was going to make a bag. She had been making a pencil case at school and felt quite confident she could make the bag.
We searched the stash and found some baby blue corduroy, some blue fur and a remnant of blue and white sheeting.
We also found some iron on sparkles that spelt out "Paris".
So I lost my sewing machine for the day, but was summoned every so often to advise her what step to take next.

Sofie designed the bag shape herself. She cut out the fabric and did all the sewing. She even did the unpicking (only needed to do that once) herself.
She plans on using it as her dance bag - to take her jazz and tap shoes and drink bottle to class.
The fur on the outside forms a pocket. And there is a phone pocket inside as well!

Well done, Sofie!

My first sewing project in grade 8 sewing class (many moons ago!) was a tote bag, and it was made from blue corduroy, with a patch pocket, and really ugly clear acrylic round handles - no fur trim, and no cell phone pocket, either!

Nice job - creative use of the fabric from the stash!
