I enjoy being home. And really enjoy being home when I can create something fun. So on this Labor Day holiday, I used a birthday gift to Hobby Lobby and bought some canvas, paint, thread, and zippers to make a zippered bag/clutch. I took an online workshop from Roben-Marie Smith, a fabulous artist whose art I LOVE. I watched the videos, then got busy on the project.
First I painted some canvas.
Then I made the bag. It was so easy…even the zipper! Yes, you heard me right. The zipper was easy-and I didn’t even have a zipper-foot! A HUGE thanks to my parents who took my sewing machine and had it fixed for my birthday. I’m thrilled with it!
So here is my finished bag. I am super proud of it, since it has been ages since I’ve sewn anything other than hemming some curtains.
