Sewing Projects #1 & 2

My first project with my brand new machine!! I made this tote bag from this tutorial. Its perfect for all my work stuff but not too big to use as a normal purse. It was my first time with gussets and I was surprised at how easy they were to work with. It was a great first project.

I also made a small bag for my IPod stuff using the steps from this tutorial, though the material I used wasn't really right for that kind of bag. I will be remaking it with stronger fabric. Yay to completing something 24 hours after buying my machine!


I am "a girl named su" and after a lot of thought I have decided to start a blog. Eek! This is a bit intimidating!

I have been looking at a lot of craft sites lately (and I mean a ton) and I really like the way bloggers have created such a friendly community. There are so many truly talented people out there and I would like to be a part of this creative culture.

I just bought a sewing machine and though its not my first, this one was bought with serious intentions of becoming some-what skilled at sewing. I am a keen baker and knitter but my husband is tired of sweets in the house and I am a bit burnt out with my needles so this is my attempt to create a new outlet.

This blog will be my tiny way of contributing to the craftosphere. I will use it to write about random things too because without the randomness what good is life eh?
