My First Sewing Project: Messenger Bag

Charrie and I are taking some sewing classes. She wants to learn quilting, but thought starting with some basic sewing would not be a bad idea. I have a little sewing experiance, but could use quite a bit if instruction, myself.

Our first project is a messenger bag (See & Sew Pattern B4583). I just finished mine tonight. Charrie will be done in our next class on Tuesday. I’ll post some pictures of her’s when its done.

    Maybe in a bit. I’ve found some flat/ivy/driver/golf/jeff cap patterns that I think will be my next project. I suspect the first one will be a “throw away” to see how it works and to check the fit. I found some baret patterns that Charrie may like. Not to mention, play with the embroidery aspects of my machine.
