Now we all know that I'm not much of a seamstress, but I am so excited about this project. I had so much fun making it and picking out the cloth and seeing the finished project come together. The pattern came from a book my mom got me for graduation called 24 Hour Sewing Projects. However, this bag took me about 10 hours to finish (from cutting out the shapes to cutting the loose threads), and I'm considering renaming my copy of the book One-Bobbin Projects, because when I was finished I had about two feet of thread left on my bobbin-- pretty cool.
I'll update after I give my friend her gift!
