My First Sewing Project!

One time when I was really young, my brother Izaak and I had someone who helped us sew aprons. I'm sure he would appreciate everyone knowing that, but in his defense, it was a guy's apron. Anyway, that was the only thing I had ever sewn before, and I'm guessing I didn't do much of it by myself. This, however, was all me. :) I was surprised it didn't turn out half bad. So here's the process and what I ended up with...

All cut out and ready!

Time to sew...

The finished product!

I really had no idea what I was doing, but it was a lot of fun. I kind of had to make some of the stuff up because I'm not sure how to read "sewing". :) I've decided I'm going to have to start another sewing project sometime soon.


  1. WHAT!?!?! You have a BLOG?!?!? :) I had no idea! LOVE the cute little bag. Nice work. Maybe I should ask Izaak to make me some curtains... Ha! :) Love you!

  2. cute bag, Jenni!!! Speaking of curtains... I just finished some up for our dining room. Time to work on the things for Jillian's "big girl" room. Hope you're doing well.


  3. Your purse turned out awesome Jenni! How did you do that? Did you have a pattern? I really want to try this idea out...my current purse needs to retire.
