Last week I was greeted at Bible Study by my friend Arianna. Arianna is a pretty soft spoken gal, so when she launched into an excited description of a project that was "just right for" me, I took notice.
The project was a reusable snack bag. She had bought one at the Farmer's Market and showed me how simple it was. I stuck the bag into my purse and decided I would give it a look later in the week.
I did take a look and then I bought some liner the next day and some Velcro too. Tonight I sewed it together. I found a tutorial online to help with sewing details and then, with only five trips from the porch to the computer, I made my first bag! EVER.
I know it's simple and basic and far from perfect, but I faced my fear of sewing bags and I am pumped. I'm still intimidated by the thought of a zipper, though, so I think I will perfect this version before moving on to zippers and button holes.
Thanks for the challenge, Arianna. This bags for you!
