I Am Learning To Sew- Project 7

Sewing project 7 - a bag. I had trouble with this one because I misunderstood the instructions and put the wrong sides together. I then did not notice my mistake until after I had it all sew together. Got a lot of practice ripping seams with this one.

Your daily dedication to learning to sew is amazing!

My best bag tip (which you may already know given your good choice of lining colour) is: always choose a light or bright colour fabric for the lining as it makes finding things in the bag much easier. Often people pick a dark colour thinking it will stay clean longer, but dark colours make finding things really hard.

Well, BW, not actually sewing each day, just putting the photos up of the things I have finished. I try to do one project a day but sometimes I don't have the time or patience to do so.

Thanks for the bag tip. Had not picked lighter colors on purpose, but what you said does make sense and, after checking, I see all my bag project do have bright insides. Form follows function. ;)
