Just completed my first real sewing project.
A reversible shoulder bag from Sac et Pochettes - mes carnet de couture.
I'm sure a more capable seamstress could whip this up in a weekend - lets just say it took me 'slightly' longer, but I got there in the end, mistakes and all.
I added the crochet flowers to cover my less than straight sewing!
The yellow side (the side from which I was sewing) came out ok but I just couldn't get the purple side to line up. So cover up was the name of the game - you didn't see anything OK!
and my pleats at the bottom didn't quite line up either but that's not so visible...
I think I prefer the yellow side. Maybe it's because whilst making it yellow was my 'main' color and the 'purple' was always just the inside?
The bag was a gift for my friend Amy, who very kindly said she likes both sides!!
I'd love to try making a garment for myself next, any suggestions for a beginner-limited ability 'couturière' would be greatly welcomed (especially if there's a really detailed photo tutorial to go with it).
